Stockade Works Boot Camps help participants develop the skills required to work in film, TV and theater production, post-production and tech fields. Our programming provides equal access to qualified workers from all backgrounds and works to bridge the gap between education and vocation.

Stockade Works designs and leads the training programs and works with top industry professionals who help instruct program participants and deliver job readiness and specialty skills.  These professionals come from a broad spectrum of industry positions ranging from directors, sound mixers, producers, boom operators, editors, set decoration and set building, among many others.

Successful Boot Camp graduates will have the opportunity to be placed on HBO’s limited-episode series production of “I Know This Much Is True” that will immediately follow the intensive, or on another upcoming local production.

Select trainees will be provided a lead mentor - an industry professional, who will provide 6-12 months of mentorship before, during, and after the Boot Camp. This mentor will be on set during the production to help assist and provide career development to all trainees.

Applications are now closed.
