The Digital Film Program is designed for students who want to achieve results in an exciting fast paced atmosphere and immerse themselves in the filmmaking process, using production company practices. The intensive nature of the full-time program allows us to deliver cost effective training within a short time frame using up to date equipment under the tutelage of experienced filmmakers.
Students gain a thorough working knowledge of all aspects of film production enabling them to pursue entry level film industry crew roles as well as develop the skills to set up their own companies, create independent film projects, work in the educational or new media sectors or go on to further education.
All students work towards a graduation film in a genre of their choosing, prepare festival packages and enter film festivals with a polished short film to set them on their chosen career paths.
Students receive one-to-one career guidance and complete the Motion Picture Industry Orientation Certificate. Graduates benefit from connections to local film organizations and instructor contacts and remain part of our “growing” film community, gaining access to incoming job offers and work on past students up coming productions.
