Advanced Production Center

The APC is a resource created to help students locate crews, cast and other production resources for their registered advanced productions. The APC matches interested crew members with interested producers and directors in all phases of production.

Register your Advanced Project
Students enrolled in Advanced Production classes (i.e. Directing III, Special Studies, Independent Projects, Practicum, or Graduate Thesis) are encouraged to visit the APC to discuss the project. Register your project to reach out to more then 500 interested crew members. Projects will be kept on file for one academic year.

Seeking to Crew
Additionally, students seeking work on an advanced production should subscribe to Filmmakers. By signing up, you will receive notifications on projects looking for crew.

Casting Database
The Advanced Production Center also houses Columbia's headshot books of actors and actresses who have previously worked on Columbia projects or have submitted their headshot to the office.
Actors: Submit headshots/resumes for film casting or scene study!

Script Bank
The APC maintains a Script Bank which contains material for short, animated, and feature films.  To search the script bank, please visit the APC. Scripts may be used, with the written permission of the copyright holder, for independent and class projects. Submit your polished screenplay today!

All databases are available for search by CCC students.  To search a database, either visit the APC or email production@colum.edu with your name, Oasis ID, and the database which interests you.

If you need help with locations, insurance, or any other film related issues please stop by the office. Students are encouraged to make an appointment via email.
