Working on productions and shooting films


Audiovisual courses

Ever heard of Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Sofia Coppola or Tim Burton? These inspiring individuals have directed some of the most iconic films over the past few decades. Being in the director's seat is one of the most diverse and challenging roles in film production. He/she is the visionary that brings all the production elements together from the first written word on a script to the last credit role of the final movie. From feature length films to short videos, film directors work with their production team to translate script to video. This process involves understanding how to manage a film crew as well as excel in technical and creative areas such as shooting styles, directing actors, and using green screen studios. 

Our course includes several course modules that will cover editing, camera techniques, live studio shoots, film production, interior and exterior shooting, how to work with actors and much more.
