Filmmaking - 1 Year Program

Prague Film School
Campus Full time 1 year September 2017 Czech Republic Prague

Prague Film School is one of Europe’s leading schools providing practical training in the core disciplines of filmmaking. The school's accelerated programs, its international faculty and world-class facilities draw students from all over the globe bent on converting a long-held passion for film into a life-time profession. [+]

September 4, 2015 - May 22, 2016 Prague Film School trains students to become film professionals. This is accomplished through implementing a praxis-heavy curriculum integrated with theory and analysis in the classroom. Each student is involved in up to 30 productions annually, many of which end up in the Industry's top film festivals. The prevailing ethos of Prague Film School is a mix of European art-house and American independent cinemas. Up to 80 students annually enroll at the school, drawn from the best schools around the globe and from a wide range of professions and backgrounds. Different from many national film academies or major private film schools abroad or in Europe, Prague Film School is characterized by its small size. This lends a particular intimacy to the educational and filmmaking experience, promoting close work relations with teachers and students and affording easy access to filmmaking facilities. Based in Prague, it is the city of Prague itself that plays a leading role in the students' experience at PFS. Professional productions come from all over the world to shoot in one of the world's most beautiful capitals. Students at Prague Film School have the city available to them all the time, as a classroom, as a home and as a film set. Films made in the course of the year program reflect a gradual progression from the basics of filmmaking to the successful completion of a well-crafted film. Each stage of the process is developed under the supervision of the faculty whose courses cover theoretical and technical topics aimed at deepening knowledge and honing technical skills. The year program is divided into two semesters. First semester, each student completes foundation courses in screenwriting, directing, cinematography and editing. Students also enroll in two elective courses while receiving additional training in sound, lighting, camera movement and grip. Practical exercises are integrated into the curriculum and each student directs 4 films while working on another 16 to 20 productions in some crew capacity. During the second semester, students specialize in one or two areas of their choice. Each specialization has its own curriculum. As part of the specializations, each student writes and directs 2 to 3 films and works on another 12 to 14 productions in various crew positions. The great emphasis of the second semester is placed on the Diploma Film, which should be of film festival quality. APPLICATION DEADLINE Early-Action Application Deadline: December 8, 2014 Final Application Deadline: February 23, 2015 Fees - Tuition Fee: 14.900 Euro - Equipment Fee: 900 Euro [does not apply for acting for film program] WHY STUDY AT PRAGUE FILM SCHOOL? Praxis-Oriented: One would be hard-pressed to find a program that provides as much practical exposure to filmmaking. More than 400 films are shot per year at Prague Film School and students in the year program participate on as many as 30 productions. The operating principle of Prague Film School is training, and we believe as with instruments or with languages, the only way to develop fluency is to practice. High-end facilities: Prague Film School is well-stocked with the latest cutting-edge equipment used in professional film productions throughout the world. Students have immediate access to the school's fleet of cameras, including RED, Arri, Canon and Sony high definition cameras, in addition to high-end lighting, sound and grip. Intensive: The type of student who chooses Prague Film School comes to us because he or she has essentially only one year in terms of time or financial resources to cross from where he or she is in life at the moment into the world of professional filmmaking. We then have only one year to bring these students to a level of competence where they can operate professionally. As such the program is highly squeezed. Faculty-student relations: Core faculty are brought in from around the world. While all teachers are accomplished professional filmmakers, their primary purpose in Prague is to teach students at Prague Film School. The dynamics are then what you find at exclusive boarding schools and small colleges in the U.S., where the teachers are highly devoted to their students and accessible. Faculty also embody the school’s ideology of integrating European art-house with American independent cinemas. Diversity of student body: In a student body of 60 students, 25-30 countries are represented. Nearly every other student is from a different part of the world, but there’s a sub-cultural glue binding them together. Students live and breathe film together. Liberalism: Most students at our school have completed undergraduate studies and see their time at film school as a cherished chance to wed their deep interests with a vocation. As such, the administration treats all students as responsible adults and trusts students to take full responsibility for their studies. The school does not interfere with students’ artistic choices. Prague: Prague is one of those very rare cities that manages to combine cosmopolitanism with intimacy and beauty. It’s magic is apparent to just about anyone fortunate enough to spend some time here. Prague is a major European film center with one of the continent’s largest and oldest film studios. The city is regarded among the world's most beautiful capitals and productions come from all over the globe to capitalize on the the city's beauty and film resources. For a film student, Prague is a dream city, providing a setting for virtually any type of film, a charismatic metropolitan buzz for inspiration and affordability still unique in the developed world.

Course Studies in Film in Europe 2017. During the first year of 3D Film Production you learn the 3D crafts, and the second year teaches you to make captivating 3D films. When producing a 3D film, you will be using software and 3D characters instead of film cameras and actors. First year - The 3D craft The first year of 3D Film Production is identical to 3D Design and Animation. You can still apply directly for this two-year study program; 3D Film Production. To be good at something you need continuous training, and 3D Design and Animation is no exception. In this course we start building, or modeling, very simple objects in 3D. We then texturize, or paint these objects, before finally lighting and completing them. Thereafter, it is back to modeling again, but this time with greater complexity. Again, we do more texturing and lighting, and we also increase the levels of detail and complexity. The same process is repeated over and over again, but with even more refinement each time. That way, we are able to slowly but surely, progress from the production a simple object like a cup, on to more complicated objects, such as a human figure. The next challenge is to construct these characters’ movements in a manner that is believable. Once more, the aim is to strive towards greater complexity as we focus on advanced 3D figures of human beings. If you are able to sculpt a human, you can basically create anything in 3D. 3D is a mixture of both technical knowledge and artistic abilities. This is highly emphasized at Noroff, and we therefore facilitate our training to include both design skills and technical competency. It will be expected that you complete several drawing exercises on paper, and your software as well as technical skills must also be proficient. The assignments in 3D Design and Animation have an objective to simulate real-life challenges that awaits in the industry, and by so prepare you for immediate employment and production after graduation. Second Year - Produce an animated short film Since the dawn of time, storytelling has been part of what it means to be human, and what it mens to be creative and thinking beings. In all storytelling, there is a common structure, with certain variations depending on genre. If you have seen one romantic comedy, you know that a conflict will present itself before the second half, but you also know the story will have a happy ending. If you have read Norwegian fairy tales, you know that the first and second brother will not get the princess, but the third will succeed and win half the kingdom. You will learn the structure of various genres in both short and feature films, and be able to identify the structure and the basic plot elements in a movie. Once you understand these genres, you can draw ideas from any film, in creating your own story. Conceptualization In this study program, you will learn to work with all phases of production, from idea to finished film. When you finish the script, you will create a storyboard, then animate pre-visualizations, before moving on to principal and post production. An all 3D film has no real actors to instruct. It's your job to bring the 3D characters to life. Our minds are experts in reading body language, and if an animation is done poorly, we will notice something wrong, and the magic of the animation is lost. The audience may not be able to pinpoint the error, other than sensing that something is wrong. You, however, will gain knowledge of human anatomy, body language and facial expressions, and thereby be able to make your characters behave in the way that they should. Facial expressions and lip-sync The human has over forty muscles, and our brains aree experts on interpreting various facial expressions. A large portion of digital acting is to make use of our knowledge of facial anatomy and expressions, to convey the right moods and undertones. When the characters are talking, it is essential that lip movements and audio are synchronized. Have you ever noticed when the audio on television is off by even a fraction of a second? This can be very annoying, and we may struggle to keep up with what is being said. You must use your knowledge of phonetics and phonology to make the appropriate lip movements of your character. In addition, the words and the way they are being spoken, must ineract along with the character's body language, so they convey the same message. Film techniques and pre-production When you see a good movie, you react emotionally to the plot, and your reaction is not at random. It is in fact the filmmakers who are manipulating you! As a filmmaker, you have many tools at your disposal for manipulating the audience into experiencing the story as you wish. The effect of good editing by use of multiple angles may increase the tension in the scene. You can use variations in camera motion, speed, soundtrack, lighting, shadows and colors, to create different moods and tones. An important part of pre-production is storyboarding, where the film's scenes are drawn, often as a cartoon, with descriptions of movements and mood. This is very cost-effective, given that it is easier to change a scene in a storyboard, rather than making an entire animation sequence again. It also helps the instructor to maintain artistic control over the final product, beacause the entire production derives from storyboard. Admission requirements Three-year upper secondary education or a vocational education certificate. [-]
