How does a filmmaker practice their craft in a quick, effective and cost effective way?
We do so by providing a set of guidelines that ensures a quick turn around with quality work.
It's difficult for a filmmaker to practice their craft quickly. A filmmaker needs a script, a treatment, storyboards, casting, rehearsals, gear, crew, locations and lots of favors from friends and family just to put out a short project.
Dogma18 aims to give experienced filmmakers a place to showcase and sharpen their craft, as well as provide aspiring filmmakers the opportunity to get hands on their own short.
In addition, thAcademy provides an education that is based on the craft of filmmaking, money management, career development and time management, giving filmmakers what other schools don't - practice in craft, business and career development.
