Professor of Film and Television


SCAD film and television students mirror professional production practices of the industry as they collaborate with university’s other programs in dramatic writing, production design, performing arts, 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 more. 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.

You have an opportunity to join SCAD as a film and television professor in Savannah, a city booming with film and television productions. Immersed in a creative studio environment with resources and technology rivaling professional productions, your knowledge and professional guidance will help students continue SCAD’s award-winning tradition. Ideal candidates should have credited professional experience in film and television productions, including specializations in preproduction, production and/or postproduction.

Thanks in part to the state’s lucrative tax incentives for film and television productions, Georgia was named the No. 1 global filming location — possessing 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 the Moviemaker Magazine as one of the best small cities to live and work as a moviemaker, Savannah offers an inviting climate and a culturally rich downtown, providing a real-world workshop for the study of art and design. The university blends seamlessly into the Savannah landscape and provides students with a dynamically layered learning environment in which to thrive.
