Central Film School is committed to training students in established industry practice while at the same time actively embracing emerging digital technologies. At Central Film School, students learn to shoot on a range of formats across both film and Digital High Definition.
In addition to learning to shoot on film, students also learn to shoot on solid state digital cameras including the ground-breaking Canon C-300 35mm Sensor HD Movie Camera. This camera comes equipped with a Wi-Fi transmitter that outputs all live camera information wirelessly to an accompanying iPad. This unit also comes with a jib and remote follow-focus, providing students with professional-grade shooting facilities.
The same principle applies to all other equipment at the school, where students train on the same kit as they will use when they move on to work in the industry.
We train our filmmakers to work with industry standard software throughout production. All our Apple machines are provided with the entire Adobe Creative Cloud package, as well as Macbooks for on-set work.
Students are provided with office production facilities and telephone lines as well as the support of a dedicated Production Manager. Students work with industry standard software including Movie Magic Budgeting and Movie Magic Scheduling, so that they are ready to work in a professional environment immediately upon graduation.
