Ever thought about making a career out of your love for film? Our Digital Filmmaking professional diploma program offers 18 months of intense film training, preparing you for a variety of roles in the growing film industry across Canada. The program combines both traditional film studies – such as the filmmaking process and the history of film and cinematography – with solid hands on technical and artistic training in a studio environment to prepare students for careers in film.

FILM SCHOOL TRAINING

As a student in our Digital Filmmaking program, you will be immersed in a real movie studio setting, learning film production techniques, including the equipment, skills and protocols necessary to work as a crew member on film, video or TV location shoots.

  • Working with industry professionals – specialists in sound, cinematography, directing, and otherwise – in class and on mentored film shoots.
  • Exploring some of the areas of specialization that you might decide to focus on – documentary filmmaking, sound for film and video, broadcast production, post-production, cinematography and more.

  • The tools and knowhow needed in order to create a demo reel to show off your best work and help land you your first job.
  • A well rounded background in crew work around sets and in pre and post production.
