During your time here, you will have access to high-end filmmaking equipment. One of the greatest advantages of our school is huge range of industry-standard equipment at your fingertips to use. Our equipment is available for you to use free of charge both during the classes and on your own final film projects.
Filmmaking technology is constantly being improved and old technologies replaced. This is why we teach our students with current, professional cameras and technology..
Even the best cameras cannot create a perfect image without high-quality lenses. Our students learn how to make motivated choices about which focal length is best for their film’s desired image and mood.
Whether our students are shooting indoors, outdoors, in a studio, or in their home, we have lights for every location.
The quickest way to differentiate an amateur film from a professional film is by the quality of the sound recording. Using professional-quality microphones and audio mixers elevates our students’ films to the next level.
Microphone: Sennheiser 600 MKE Shotgun
Microphone: Sennheiser EW500 – G4
Mixer/Recorder: Sound Devices MixPre-10
Mixer/Recorder: Tascam DR-70D
Blimps and windscreens
In addition to the equipment we have available for students to use on location for their films, we also have a fully equipped professional green screen and lighting studio on our premises, available for students to use.
Special production facilities can be rented at a discounted student price from our cooperating partner, Three Brothers Production. You can learn more about these special facilities here.
One of the biggest logistical hurdles for student filmmakers is transportation. We support our students’ projects by offering them a van free of charge, so they can transport their film equipment and crews to their shooting locations.
Additionally, we offer trailers for a discounted rental price through our cooperating partner, Three Brothers Production. See more about Three Brothers here.
Every student is given a license to Premiere Pro, so they can use this software on their personal computers during their course. We also have four computers, and one professional sound and color-grading bay for our students to use.

We have an ever-growing library of reference materials for our students to borrow and read in their free time. Our library contains books which offer information and inspiration for every aspect of filmmaking, from Scriptwriting to Editing. We believe that filmmaking is not only practical, but also theoretical and rooted in a rich cultural history.
For specialized filmmaking equipment, our students are offered a discounted rental price through our collaborating partners.
