Hollywood Cinema Production Resources (Hollywood CPR), is a great way to learn what it takes to become a skilled technician in an entry-level Motion Picture and Television Production career. They offer training in various “Below the Line” fields within the entertainment industry such as: Lighting Technicians, all aspects of Grip work, Set Design, Production Sound, Editing, Set Painting, Props and more… When we say “Below the Line”, it’s not at all derogatory, it’s just that all Producers, Directors, Actors, and Writers are what they call “Above the Line”, this is just for budgeting purposes and name only, although Above the Line talent is usually more lucrative, but all Below and Above the line talent are very important. The Set Grips attach walls and rigging for Lighting Technicians to hang big production lights, Set Painters paint the walls to the Production Designers vision and plans from the Director, which the Grips have put into place, the Set Designers dress the Set and so on…

They’re not Just about knowledge, they’re about skill…

To attend a course with Hollywood CPR and eventually land a below the line job inside the Motion Picture and TV Industry, you must treat the classroom as if you were a working professional, they will in turn treat you like a hired employee, so it’s very important to be on time, and be ready for some hard, but rewarding work during the 18 month course. This will gain their respect so they can give you a good recommendation later on. Remember, some film shoots could last up to 12 or 16 hours a day of hard labor, but you will be well compensated once you book the gig. Even though they are located at West LA College and offer College credit for the course, it is not recommended for those who do not have a passion for this field of entertainment… At Hollywood CPR, they can also assist you with the skills you need to maintain your job, and manage your money with the life skills class, and they will also assist you with the knowledge you need to get into a union, I.A.T.S.E. Local 80 is our favorite for all the Grips!!! Socialbilitty
