Filmmaking involves leadership, problem solving, team work, and communication. It's about working towards a common goal working together. It’s about overcoming the lack of resources and producing creative works that answer questions, reveal information, and inspire. It’s about seeing your work presented to an audience and your ideas communicated to others.

Writing and Acting

It’s all about stories. Whether they’re on the web, in a magazine, book, government plan, or on TV, stories are what grab people by the heart. Everyone loves a story. 


Filmmaking isn't just confined to the physical world. During your enrollment at the Digital Film school, you will also get to try your hand at hand-drawn, claymation, and stop-motion animation! Animation is about letting your creative energies flow onto a truly unique canvas, and making static images come to life through the magic of motion and editing.
