Professional Filmmaking

Equipment

In our advanced courses at Prague Film Institute, you will have hands-on experience with professional filmmaking equipment, including cameras like Arri Alexa LF, Arri Alexa Mini, Sony VENICE 6K, RED V-RAPTOR 8K, and premium lenses like Arri Ultraprime, Arri Masterprime, and Cooke. Our school premises are equipped with a vast range of industry-standard equipment that is readily available for your use, free of charge for your final films. Unlike other schools, the equipment fee is already included in our tuition fee, ensuring you have access to top-quality tools without additional costs.
