SCAD seeks a full-time professor of film and television for its Savannah location, a city booming with film and television productions.

SCAD film and television students mirror professional production practices of the entertainment industry as they collaborate with related SCAD programs in dramatic writing, performing arts, production design, sound design, visual effects, and more. The compelling and powerful visual stories of SCAD students capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences at festivals around the world, including the Tribeca Film Festival, Sundance, Cannes, SXSW, and others. SCAD student filmmakers have been recognized by the Television Academy Foundation numerous times, including the 2017 Student Emmy Award for Best Scripted Series for the university’s live-action comedy, The Buzz, and as a finalist for the Student Academy Awards in 2020.

Immersed in a creative studio environment with leading resources and technology, students will benefit from your knowledge and guidance as they continue the award-winning tradition at SCAD. The ideal candidate has credited professional experience in film and television productions, including specializations in preproduction, production, and/or postproduction. University-level teaching experience is preferred.

Thanks in part to Georgia’s lucrative tax incentives for film and television productions, the state was named the No. 1 global filming location, with more top-100 feature films released at the domestic box office in 2016 than any other place in the world. With movies and TV shows constantly filming throughout the state, productions continue to find film-ready crews comprised of SCAD students and alumni, many of whom work on real productions long before graduation. Named among the best small cities in the U.S. by Condé Nast Traveler and listed by Moviemaker Magazine as one of the best small cities in which to live and work as a filmmaker, Savannah offers an inviting climate and a culturally rich downtown, providing a real-world workshop for the study of art and design.

Requirements
- Master’s degree or equivalent in film and television or a related field
- Portfolio or demo reel
