Become a Member

Three membership tiers are available. Come find your place at FMAS!



Professional – $60 / year

The key benefit of a Professional membership is having your profile listed in the public Member Directory. You can upload photos, links, and details about your film projects and experience. Then, producers can sort the Directory to find crew members to join upcoming local productions! You can also opt in to receive email alerts when a local film production has an open crew call.

As a Professional member, you will also have access to the technology you need to complete your own film projects! You can reserve time to use our FREE editing bay, and you can check out professional equipment from our Gear Closet. The FMAS editing bay and Gear Closet are both conveniently located at the Creamery Arts Center in downtown Springfield.

In addition, you are eligible to be “in the spotlight” on the FMAS website, where we will feature local work being done in the motion media arts by our talented FMAS members.

Discounts and priority registration for educational opportunities and special events will help you keep your skills sharp and your network connections plentiful (and we think you’ll have some fun, too!). FMAS newsletters and other resources will keep you in the loop on upcoming events at FMAS and around the community.

Student – $30 / year

Students receive all the benefits of a Professional membership, but at half the cost! Hey, we remember what it was like being a student. Must enroll with a valid student email address.

Enthusiast – $30 / year

We love our Enthusiasts just as much as you love film! FMAS Enthusiasts are avid supporters of the motion media arts and the Springfield area. Enthusiasts help us to expand upon and promote all that is awesome about the Ozarks and its vibrant film industry!

As an Enthusiast, you will have access to the same great events, classes, and resources as our Professional members. Since you don’t work in the industry, though, we won’t list your skills / experience in the searchable Member Directory or notify you about crew calls.
