An exciting venture born out of powerful forces!

Home Grown Workforce Initiative, (HGWI) a Louisiana limited liability company, is the training                                              

arm of Emerald Bayou Studios.  HGWI is dedicated to developing a viable production

workforce providing crew support to Emerald Bayou Studios productions and facilitating
the demands of the rapidly growing Louisiana film industry.


HGWI is a comprehensive 12-week on-the-job film and video training program

conducted by qualified industry professionals through classroom instruction and

practicum labs ensuring knowledge and hands-on experience with audio, lighting and camera
equipment. 

 

With an introduction to industry terminology, familiarity with standard production

operations and technical training, candidates are then assigned crew positions on a production. 


Candidates who complete the full requirements of the training program are awarded a Certificate 
of Completion in the Technical Training of Video and Film Production from Home Grown Workforce Initiative and screen credit on a production.
