(WILMINGTON) -- Gov. Bev Perdue said her 2012-2013 budget proposal will include $1 million to launch a community college based workforce development initiative that would train those interested in working the in film production. The funding will go to community colleges in Wilmington and Winston-Salem.

The initiative would help develop 10 new five-week workforce training courses that would prepare as many as 400 people for private sector jobs that serve the film industry.

"This initiative will leverage the growing film and television industry in our state and train North Carolinians for real jobs in this priority sector,” said Perdue.

The program would train people for such jobs as set construction, paint and plaster work, set dressing and props, camera work, wardrobe work, hair and makeup, grip work, and electrical and production office support. Instructors for the program would come from the film industry.
