Aspiring professional photographers and digital filmmakers often wish to understand the benefits of a full-time on-campus school versus online education portal.
Both Photography and DSLR Film Making are creative art forms that require aptitude and passion. Online resources like blogs, videos and tutorials help accelerate your learning curve helping you become a good photographer.
If you are looking to establish yourself as a professional commercial photographer and/or a digital filmmaker you will benefit immensely from an on-campus education at the right institution.
The One School Goa offers the right mix of elements that contributes towards grooming you into a market-ready professional. It begins by imbibing the discipline and work-ethics, to becoming capable of thinking independently and creatively. To cut it short, you should be able to create your own individual style that will help you stand out in the competition.
“The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.”— Steven Spielberg
Creativity is not an accident, it is a process. As the very famous and influential artist, Vincent van Gogh once said, “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” Our experiential learning methodology is anchored on our credo ‘We don’t teach, we let you learn’ to make you into a ‘creative’ person with a purpose.
The hands-on mentoring encourages you the freedom to express and develop your individual style which will help you create a distinctive identity. Mentorship is not about pushing theories down your throat but giving the right nudges that help you evolve into your own.
Our robust feedback mechanism ensures a committed student a steady upward learning curve.
Diverse Visiting Faculties
We regularly invite established globally acclaimed professionals from diverse fields (photographers, filmmakers, artists, architects, fashion designers, business entrepreneurs…) to interact with our students. We believe that the variety helps students hone their creative and enterprise acumen.
Assignments & Projects are simulated to create a real business environment. Students learn the creative and business dynamics involved when dealing with clients. They also get the opportunity to make a creative pitch to real clients. This prepares them to transition directly into the market, without having to work as an apprentice after graduation.
Jury Based Evaluation
A professionally printed portfolio book is evaluated by internal and external jurors. The external jurors are practising industry professionals who do a one-on-one review and offer career advice based on the students focus area. Students pass-out with specialisation in two genres.
Work and Business Ethics
We stress on a simple task like taking care of your gears, managing digital work-flow, to meeting deadlines and honouring professional commitments also more understand the complex dynamics of the business ecosystem.
