Keeping the latent unmet needs of the MENA region in mind, and the growing demand for talent in the area of film development and production, ISD Global is currently engaged in talks with leading American and European Film Institutes to offer Certificate/Diploma programmes to potential audiences in the GCC and the Indian Sub Continent. These would essentially involve areas like Film Production, Screenwriting, Cinematography, Sound & Picture Editing and Direction. The courses would adopt a ‘ Script to Screen ‘ approach and would be highly intensive and hands on. The programmes would be targeted across a wide spectrum of users right from the downright amateur to the budding professional who has some exposure to the area of digital filmmaking. Plans are also afoot to offer workshops completely online (apart from traditional classroom oriented approaches) in order that students based across the region can have access to learning irrespective of where they are geographically located. So, if there is a film maker in you, keep watching this space!
