REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP)

SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT FOR MID-CAREER PRODUCTION ACCOUNTING PROGRAM


Education Media LLC is seeking highly qualified Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and Curriculum Consultants for the development of a Production Accounting Program.

Education Media LLC is a cutting-edge EdTech company that is revolutionizing technical arts education through its online learning and personalized digital curricula.   We operate through a network of nonprofits, for-profits, government and education agencies, artists, consultants, and industry professionals to provide professional quality technical, arts, and trades training for the art and entertainment industry sectors.  We are working with The California Film Commission (CFC) and the IATSE Entertainment and Exhibition Industries Training Trust in the development of a specialized film production accounting program designed to equip learners with practical expertise and real-world insights essential to effectively enter a mid-career production accounting position. 

 

The CFC administers the California Film and Television Tax Credit Program (Program) which provides tax credits to eligible film and TV productions that meet the Program’s criteria. The Program was designed to target productions that were most likely to leave the state due to incentives being offered in other states and countries. The Program, which launched in July 2009, has been effective in keeping productions working in the state. Senate Bill No. 878 created an extension of the Tax Credit Program (Program 3.0), that requires the CFC to create a Pilot Career Pathways Training Program (Training Program) targeting underserved communities for entry into film and television industry jobs. 

        

The CFC has designated the IATSE Entertainment and Exhibition Industries Training Trust Fund as the administrator for this Training Program. The TTF is a joint labor-management non-profit organization that facilitates training opportunities for California’s workers to achieve and maintain the skills, ability, and knowledge necessary to meet the ever-changing technologies in the entertainment and exhibition industries. The TTF’s mission is to promote industry-wide recognized standards for safety, skills, and craftsmanship in the entertainment and exhibition industries by providing training that improves existing skills, develops new skills, embraces technological change, and focuses on the safest way to perform the work of the crafts; developing state-of-the-art training tools, resources, and methods.
