Career Options and Education Pathways
- The Script to Screen – Advanced Television and Film program is unique among the few other post-graduate film and television offerings currently available in the Greater Toronto Area.
- Instead of immediately streaming you into master classes, the first semester will ensure you obtain a solid working knowledge of the various roles people have when working on a film or television production.
- The amount of included foundational lessons will allow you to better collaborate, improvise, problem-solve, and empathize with your fellow cast and crew members.
- The program will focus on dramatic filmmaking, comedy and several other genres. It will not, however, include documentary filmmaking.
- At a time when student films continue to be key to gaining a foothold in the business, the time and effort devoted to script development in Semester 1 and production and post-production in Semester 2 will result in higher quality student films than are customarily produced.
