Thompson-Nicola Film Commission announced Tuesday that it is presenting the Motion Picture Industry Orientation Course at Thompson Rivers University, Monday, Dec. 3, and Tuesday, Dec. 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event will take place in the Black Box Theatre in TRU’s Old Main Building and will cost $25. It is open to all TRU students and the public.

An entry-level course that is required by most B.C. Film unions, this two-day session will help participants determine which sectors of the film, television and VFX/special effects industry may be suitable for them, and may even lead to work on local film crews. It is also an excellent course for general learning about the motion picture industry.

Attendees must pre-register by the end of this week with Robin Nichol at TRU at 250.828.5000 or rnichol@tru.ca.
