Hiring Students

Hiring Student Assistants

People often ask us if we can help them find students to assist with a production that will be shooting in Austin, or to create an educational or training video for an organization, or to make a video of a special or personal event.

Many of the talented young filmmakers in our department are eager for experiences outside their class work, and we urge you to contact them via the methods below. Please remember, however, that the Department cannot usually recruit students for you nor guarantee that you will find a suitable student for your project. Any agreement you make will be between the student and yourself or your organization.

Connecting with Student Filmmakers

Contact the Moody College of Communication Career Services Office to post a job or internship opportunity.

Contact students via the Student Production Resource Center (The Hub). Submit your opportunity to The Hub bimonthly newsletter, which is circulated to all RTF undergraduate and graduate students.

You may also wish to contact the Austin Film Society and the Texas Film Commission.

In some special circumstances, the Department can assist you in recruiting students. If you are another unit on the UT campus, are a production company looking for multiple students, or feel your project needs special assistance, please contact the Department Office at (512) 471-4191.
