About Us & OUR Board of Directors
Selway Studios LLC is a Montana-based Not-for-profit production company & film academy with the main focus on the training of military veterans & other transitional careers like miners, truck drivers, etc. that may be looking for a new job, as their professions are declining in opportunity. We also encourage young people in the local Bitterroot area to join the Selway Studios Family. The owner is, himself, a disabled military veteran and interested in helping other veterans seek gainful employment in Montana. For this reason, Joshua Michael is establishing the teaching & training production company Selway Studios LLC.
“Military veterans are perfect for this type of employment for several reasons. Veterans already understand the importance of structure, accomplishing the mission, and getting things done in a timely manner, they are easily adaptable to hi-speed workplaces. Military veterans are a perfect fit for this industry.” – Joshua Michael Gennari MS
Joshua Michael also understands our younger generations are becoming very tech-savvy. Many of them already dabble in video production. For this reason, Selway Studios will be a Production House that trains high school students looking to enter the video & film production industry.
Selway Studios will be creating films here in Montana that showcase some of our great history and locations. An example of this is the drama script written by Joshua, “The Given Days”. It is a story about a Montana boy that leaves his hometown and joins the service and his struggle returning home after being discharged.
We will be hiring veterans, students, industry professionals, and others from the local communities. We will be working in conjunction with the local colleges and universities to establish certificate programs such as, but not limited to: Production Assistant, Production Management, Directing, Camera Operator, Crane Operator, and many more. Selway Studios will also be focusing on “on the job” experience for people looking to enter this exciting industry.
“Having the best equipment in the world doesn't make you a good filmmaker. Working with a great team does.”
