IAFT OPEN HOUSE
Every month, IAFT holds two Open Houses on Tuesday nights. It’s a great way to check out the IAFT Wan Chai campus, meet the mentors and learn more about IAFT programs and workshops. Our industry mentors are invited to come share their expertise knowledge and experiences in filmmaking or acting.
- “Basics of Sound for Film” by Filmmaking Mentor/Audio Director Ulf Olofsson
“Breaking Into the Industry – The Prepared Tools Every Actor Needs” by Acting Mentor/Supercapitalist Star Darren E Scott
“On Your Mark, Get Set, Shoot – Shooting Your First Movie (with a DSLR)” by Filmmaking Mentor/Cinematographer Evangelo Costadimas
As an actress myself, I found that learning from the mentors who’ve had years of professional experience in the industry, helped me gain more insight on the different aspects of filmmaking and how important it is to learn by doing. I also really enjoyed hearing their early career struggles which reminded me that even successful filmmakers and actors had to start somewhere. They are where they are because of hard work, perseverance and preparation.
I believe that the hands-on, interactive classes at IAFT will definitely help prepare any student for their career ahead of them.
I highly recommend anyone still unsure of whether film school is worth it or not, to come to the Open House to decide for themselves. Make sure you sign up early because the seats fill up quickly!
