Logistics Program Certifies Mastery in Core Competencies

Logistics Program Certifies Mastery in Core Competencies

Logistics is the broad pathway for the products we use to reach their final destination. Over 450 logistics jobs are currently available* in the Greater Richmond area. They include full-time, part-time, and contract positions, and they range from entry-level to senior management roles. You probably have roles in your company that fall into the logistics category — supply chain coordinator, transportation manager, warehouse supervisor, or operations manager.

According to the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, “The estimated direct economic output of Virginia’s Distribution and Global Logistics industry is $11.1 billion. Distribution and Global Logistics supports $9.3 billion in additional economic activity in Virginia” and employs over 72,000 people, primarily in trucking, warehousing, and transportation support. How can you ensure the people you hire will enhance your company’s productivity and competitiveness?

“The line between disorder and order lies in logistics.”

This one-day forum with panel discussion is designed to provide practical information to photographers and videographers interested in adding UAV/Drone Filming to their tool kit. This program is offered in partnership with the Virginia Film Office and the Virginia Production Alliance.

Drones have emerged as a powerful tool for producers in film, television, and new media. Real estate agents, communications specialists, EMS workers, agriculturists, and hobbyists will also benefit from this specialized training. Delivering the capability to get never-before-seen shots and a freedom to go places that traditional aircraft can’t reach, drones offer an exciting opportunity for producers, directors, and amateurs to create visual magic like never before.

As drone use has exploded in recent years, regulations, restrictions, and fees have popped up, creating a confusing landscape for producers. This course will cover what all producers need to know when filming with drones: How to choose the right aircraft and camera, location concerns, safety regulations, FAA paperwork, finding the most experienced crew, and more.

This panel of industry leaders will provide a chance to learn from the brightest minds working on the front lines of drone cinematography. Participants will have the chance to see and touch a full range of drones including small, medium and full-sized “heavy lifter” aircraft. The forum will also feature a live drone demo flight broadcast – you won’t want to miss this!

DJI, the market leader in easy-to-fly drones and aerial photography systems, has generously provided a brand new Phantom 3 Standard Drone ($500 value) to be given away by random drawing to one of the participants on the day of the event.

For the past two years, CCWA has coordinated practical training for entry level production assistant positions – a valuable training will allows participants to work confidently on the sets of commercials, television shows, net media projects, fashion shows, theatrical stage or movie sets. Participants learned on-set etiquette and protocol from seasoned filmmakers.
