Digital Filmmaking
Lights. Camera. Action. The digital revolution has arrived and you want to be at the forefront with one of the most powerful tools filmmakers have at their disposal today: digital video. Learn how in a real world movie studio setting of our Digital Filmmaking program. Here you will gain a foundation in film production techniques, theory and procedures of modern film and video production including equipment, crew positions and protocols necessary to work as entry-level crew members on film, video or TV location shoots.

The program also prepares you for work as a non-linear digital editor or for the pursuit of individual creative or entrepreneurial visions as an independent filmmaker, corporate/commercial production, and documentary filmmaking. Training includes non-linear editing, compositing and visual effects techniques with industry quality software technology. You will gain real-world experience by working on various projects that cover the entire production process, acting as a crew member on a number of shoots, in studio and on location. In the post-production process you will edit and composite on professional non-linear stations. Upon graduation of the program you will demonstrate traits shared by all independent filmmakers: personal drive, a passion for filmmaking, and a strong work ethic.
Earn your Digital Filmmaking Professional Diploma in only 12 months.


National screen Institute;


In 1986, the National Screen Institute-Canada (NSI-Canada) was formed in order to meet an increased demand for comprehensive film and television training outside of the huge metropolitan centres. The NSI-Canada adopted DramaLab and the Local Heroes Film Festival as its two flagship programs.

In 1990, after an in-depth evaluation, NSI-Canada's Board of Directors introduced a new flagship program, Drama Prize, in order to adapt to the industry's ever changing needs. Through Drama Prize, participants build their skills while producing their films. The unique format combines production incentives, mentorship, professional development workshops and a guaranteed screening during the Local Heroes International Screen Festival.

Today, Canada is the world's second largest exporter of television programming. Our films are playing to larger audiences, and gaining widespread critical acclaim. At the National Screen Institute, now with offices in both Edmonton and Winnipeg, the work continues.
