Paying Other Students

DON’T DO IT

SFTV encourages collaboration between students in the production of creative projects. Your academic peers should not be charging you for their services, nor are you allowed to pay them or charge a fee yourself. The film school does not provide equipment to you so you can make a profit.

If a fellow student volunteers on your project, you should recognize their contributions with an on-screen credit, IMDb credit and providing the best snacks and craft services you can afford.  In addition, it is customary to give access and full rights to use any clip that best showcases their contribution to your finished project.

Students who are fortunate enough to have a comfortable budget should direct their money into making the best film they can make and ensuring their cast and crew are comfortable and well fed.
