Hey all,

First post on here.

I am a Camera Assistant just starting out mainly experience with digital. However i want to learn film. Is the course at the NFTS. 16mm /35mm worth it?

Also how do i achieve the freelance rate?

Many Thanks

Keith

Totally worth it, best course i've ever been on and the tutor is a legend in the industry.

I think you can get the freelance rate when you apply.

I've not been to the school myself however I have worked with people who have done the Cinematography course and I've worked as a 2nd on one of the NFTS films - I'm yet to meet someone who has anything but great things to say. The access to resources and tutors appears to be second to none (in the UK at least) and the people are worked with always knew exactly what they were doing and were very professional. The school also has great links to help get graduates noticed and get work after the course has finished.

Good to hear - thanks, James. I'm booked on the focus pulling course for next week and was just wondering whether any other cinematography.com readers would be attending.
