San Francisco School of Digital Filmmaking

t the San Francisco School of Digital Filmmaking the film set is your classroom. Whether you are an aspiring filmmaker or actor, our school gives you the three most valuable tools you need for starting your career; a reel of your own work, film credits, and contacts within the industry.

Our film school curriculum is project-based, allowing you to develop your skills hands-on. As a student of Digital Filmmaking or Film Acting you'll work on professional sound stages, use state-of-the art high definition filmmaking equipment (including one of the worlds few Sony F950 HD cameras), and make tough creative and technical decisions.

Combining its educational curriculum with an active production company, San Francisco School of Digital Filmmaking (SFSDF) is a new intensive digital moviemaking program opening in April 2005. At SFSDF, students and faculty engage in hands-on movie making together, all the time. SFSDF was founded by experienced moviemakers and instructors who saw the need for more practical training before, during, or after film school.

This unique concept offers students the rare opportunity to learn moviemaking from working professionals in a real world environment. Contrary to most traditional film schools, where moviemaking is approached more theoretically, SFSDF students make their own movies, developing their artistic and technical skills and advancing in the world of professional moviemaking. Each student produces 5 films of their own, learning the "nuts-and-bolts" craft of movie-making from experienced, working film professionals.

In addition to making their own movies, students learn by apprenticing on actual motion picture productions. SFSDF's production company, Fog City Pictures, will produce short-form and feature-length High Definition digital productions. The advanced curriculum is designed around these productions which utilize the school's staff, equipment, facilities and a crew of San Francisco's finest movie professionals.

Courses at SFSDF require a high level of commitment - instructors will hold you to rigorous professional standards and expectations. The intensity of the courses, deadlines, and the demands of teamwork will ensure you are acquiring vital skills and developing the habits and craft of a moviemaker. When you complete our courses, you'll have experience, contacts, and credits.
