Key programs designed to meet current training needs for film and TV industries around the world.
“It is clear that with the continuing boom in demand for audiovisual content, and the forecast for even greater growth, there is a window of opportunity to prepare and train technical crews”.
Faced with the unprecedented demand for audiovisual content in all formats, in addition to the anticipated sustainable growth of the audiovisual industry, many countries are investing in training and upskilling their creative industry workforces.
As shown in the Olsberg SPI study, “Best Practices in Screen Sector Development” (9/2019), skilled labor is one of the four basic pillars of a robust audiovisual industry, with the other three pillars being: incentives, infrastructure and services, and a film-friendly environment.
Many governments have understood the value of the audiovisual industry for economic growth in their countries due to its impact on other economic sectors and are rushing to meet the needs for skilled crew base to accommodate the demands of streaming services and traditional producers.
Courses are conducted on-line in English by experienced, recognized industry professionals in two possible interactive formats:
Open to recent film school graduates and below-the-line technical professionals.
