Film Studios

Our Institute resides in Prague in an actual working film studio and is co-owned by Three Brothers Film Production Company. The school premises are a renovated 16th century courtyard villa with a 7000 m2 exterior studio, which has been completely renewed and customized for filming.

During your studies, you will have access to 26 on-site studios, a large greenscreen studio for special effects and a prop house that belongs to the largest of its kind in Europe (specialising in historical furniture, costumes, weapons and armour). We also have very useful dining and catering facilities, wardrobe with laundry service, make-up and dressing rooms, plus quiet rooms for undisturbed production work with your team.
