Nearly all of our courses have no formal entry requirements, either prior qualifications or experience. We allow people who have missed out on education to fulfil their potential and achieve qualification that will see them succeed forward in their career. Self-motivation together with commitments is all we ask from our students

We believe that it is the qualifications and practical experience with which our students leave, rather than those with which they enter, that count.

1. Screenwriting

A Confucian maxim holds that rotten wood can’t be carved. It’s the same with screenplays – the best directing and the best actors cannot salvage a poor script. Screenwriting classes will teach the most important aspects of dramatic writing in the context of film. Organized around writing assignments, classroom critique and screenings, the sessions will concentrate on such elements as story concept, character, storytelling, format and more.

2. Directing

while a quality screenplay provides the basis for a good film, it does not guarantee one. Directing is the art of translating a script to screen. Knowing how to work with actors, work from a storyboard, and breakdown a scene is essential to film production. Here students will receive instruction in directing short narratives, student-produced and other. Classes incorporate hands-on shooting and lecture/screening sessions.

3. Cinematography

Students will be instructed in the aesthetics and techniques of the cinematographer’s craft. Principles of continuity, shot sequencing, and technical aspects related to cinematography are taught. The intensive studio classes also cover composition, lighting, camera controls and more. Students will use Panasonic full HD cameras.

4. Editing

This part of the program covers the aesthetic and technical aspects of editing. Understanding storytelling techniques and the basics of dramaturgy is necessary in furthering the creative vision of the director. Technical skills will be taught using Avid editing tools: students will learn to organize source footage, edit sync and non-sync material, trim sequences, edit audio, add effects, titles and more.

5. Sound

The sound design workshop will teach the students to plan, record and edit sound in their films.
