1st Year: Film and Cinema 101
In the first year, students get to grips with the basics of film and learn to combine all of them appropriately. To do this, we work from the foundations of cinematographic language and editing theory to discover how to capture what we want to tell before we start shooting and get to the cutting room. In this 1st year, we will focus on cinematographic language, script (creation of ideas and characters), cinematography, production, editing, acting, post-production and storyboarding.) What’s more, students will focus on understanding the industry and film culture.
2nd Year: Filmmaker
Through more advanced practical classes from day one on the school set and outdoor shoots, students learn to work on an audiovisual project and verify the need for interaction between various areas and specialties in order to create a great final product. In this 2nd year, they will diver deeper into elements covered in the 1st year but in larger productions, and they will be introduced to the field of post-production and visual effects, art direction and color correction.
