Create your future

T
he curriculum of this department explores the practical aspects of filmmaking with special emphasis on cinematography, editing, sound design and visual effects. Additional instruction is given in the fields of production design, special effects and color correction.

The schools equipment rental offers a wide range of professional equipment from the biggest names in the business (Arri, Matthews, Canon, Kinoflo etc). Student's begin familiarizing themselves with Canon DSLR cameras and 3-point lighting. As they develop their skills as film makers, their equipment lists become more complex, our equipment manager does his best to answer the needs of the student, acquiring equipment we currently don't hold from our fellow equipment rentals; Kukl, Luxor and MediaRental.

We're looking for applicants who demonstrate both creativity and a strong interest in the above technical disciplines. All incoming students are expected to have excellent computer skills.

At the end of their studies our students graduate with the title “Filmmaker - Specializing in Creative Film Technology” and will have acquired the skills and qualifications to work in film and television production and related fields.
