Want to capstonehelphelp out on a BYU student film? Our students are always looking for student volunteers to help. On this page, you can send the producer of one of out upcoming student films your interest in volunteering on their project. In some cases, you may even be able to get class credit while you work on set (current BYU students only). If you offer to help on a project, we request that you follow these guidelines:

  1. You must commit to attend all production meetings you are asked to attend
  2. You are expected to show up to the shoot at the times you agree to and staying until you are dismissed
  3. You must not miss any of your regular classes to work on the film
  4. You are expected to act professionally and respectfully with everyone on the project

Not following these guidelines will have an affect on your future opportunities with other Media Arts Projects. If you are wanting to get credit for working on a capstone, do the following:

  1. please fill out this form: TMA 372-215-388 project application
  2. Have the faculty producer/mentor over crew sign the paperwork (Tom Lefler)
  3. Return the paperwork to Kyle Stapley in the TMA office (D581 HFAC) before the add/drop deadline to receive an add code.
