Abstract [en]

Workers who desire employment inside film production come from a variety of experience levels. In Sweden, the opportunities to obtain work in the film production industry are limited and depend on situations and norms defined by the industry itself. The goal of this article is to identify challenges faced by a relatively unknown group of industry workers: those students representing industrial intellectuals who have received higher educational training in film production work, to identify the difficulties and opportunities they face in their transition from education to employment in the industry. This study is a qualitative one, based on interviews with four young adults who are recent graduates of an educational training program for film production work. The respondents were asked to identify levels of uncertainty and competitiveness prevailed and what opportunities and threats existing as important factors in terms of obtaining work. The findings demonstrate that students who are transitioning into careers are met by an environment with high demands for networking and expectation to adapt their performances and lifestyles to the demands of the job. An aptitude for work is often measured by how well workers adapt to the industry’s culture and values.
