Film Operations currently supports Mac OS X El Capitan version 10.11.6 and OS X Yosemite version 10.10.5  on all production workstations. We strongly encourage all students who wish to move projects between Film Program editorial workstations and their home Apple Macintosh computers to not upgrade their operating systems to macOS Sierra (formerly OS X) until Film Operations has properly tested stability and compatibility with production software.

Students who choose to upgrade their own computers to macOS Sierra version 10.12.x due so at their own risk. Film Operations is not charged with supporting capability issues with unsupported software versions. Please wait to update. Thank you.

These spaces will not be closed during deployment, but there will be a limited amount of workstation available during the deployment period.

DELAY UPDATE – There has been a delay in deploying Adobe CC updates across all Film Program editorial workstations due to a discovered capability issue with our currently supported production build. Students who wish to move projects between Film Program editorial workstations and their home Apple Macintosh computers should wait to update their own installations of Adobe Premiere versions 2015.3 or 2015.4 until Film Operations has remedied these issues.

The Film Program’s Casting Directory has been fully restored with a new profile style database. Check it out!

This directory is complied and updated after the annual General Casting Call to provide Film production students with access to local area actors who are interested in working on student film projects. Students who are enrolled in Film production courses can access this directory by creating/logging into their OperationalPortal.com account and use the navigation menu to locate the limited access page at Resources>Production>Casting Directory.

Looking forward, we will soon begin working on the metadata attached to each profile account to make the database easier to query searches for the types of actors you are looking for!
