Film Lab

Film Lab classroom education – through a partnership with the Clarke County School District, Film Athens has taken over management of Athens Community Career Academy Film Lab. This classroom, located on the school district's H.T. Edwards Campus, houses digital film production equipment and over 30 film editing stations.

Community Space

The Film Lab classroom will allow Film Athens to better provide education opportunities to both ACC students and the Athens area community. Workshops of varying sizes are being organized with both volunteer and for-pay instructors. This space will be set up with software to allow for self-teaching during open lab hours. Workshops, speakers, and training are open to all ages and levels of experience. The primary goal of Film Athens education is to offer the Athens community an educational opportunity they might not be able to receive otherwise. The workshops are often free, or offered at a class fee set below market cost.

- DV Cameras
- Flip Cameras
- Computers equipped with Final Cut Pro, DVD studio pro, Color and Cinema tools - Tripods
