European Film programs?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I'm currently taking classes in cinematography in L.A., but would like to eventually take a summer or a semester in Europe or Asia to get a different artistic perspective. Does anyone have experience or can recommend studies abroad? Would like to know soon so I can decide and add a foreign language to my schedule.

 

Thanks!

Emily

I am not sure if you are interested in Cinematography Workshops ...

www.lightextreme.com offers workshops in Cinematic Expression in Los Angeles and in Italy (Florence)

I browsed two schools in Germany. Course looks pretty good.

 

Hambrug Media Scholl offers 2 year Masters program in Camera(one of the four specialisations).

 

International Acamdemy for Film and Television Munich offers 4 year prgoram with 2 years of specialisation in cinematography.

 

They are quite affordable, i mean the fees and other things.

 

But i dont know about thier credebility. Have any heard about these schools? I am interested in Masters at Hamburg Media school, but i dont know how good they are. If any one can tell about these schools.

Hm, seems pretty good to me as well. But, Malik, do you speak German? You'd have as per their requirements. I guess that would be the case in most, if not all, German courses. Same goes for Austria...

Unless you've got a great talent for picking up languages, I'd be surprised if you could learn enough German to study on a high level course in 2 months.

Well, there are institutes that offer language courses, and they are not more than 3 month long. So i guess that can be done.
