It’s about investing in your future.
TV & Film is a very real industry, and so is the media and content creation business.
A recent survey, conducted by the National Film & Video Foundation (NFVF) found that the South African film and television industry contributes around R3.5 billion, yes, billion, a year to the country’s economy and employs over 25 000 people. And it’s a global industry! In 2009, the American film industry supported 22.2 million jobs and $137 billion total wages.
Ensure a bright future with lights, camera, action!
Nothing compares to seeing your idea on paper come to life on a screen.
The expression of thoughts and concepts in filmmaking is not restricted by language, traditions and media. You’re free to create whatever your imagination desires. Expose yourself to stories, concepts, performances, camera angles, filters, lighting options, editing, techniques to name a few, to ensure that you’ll never be short of ways to project your vision.
So if you’re passionate about storytelling, then there’s never been a better time to turn your passion into a career, and go from a Future Filmmaker to a professional filmmaker.
