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 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...

Cheers, Dave

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.
