It is because of this we not only look at training the technical and practical aspects needed for the industry, but we also develop young artists and their abilities to create work. This enables artists to sustain a career and ultimately make a living doing what they are passionate about.
The academy focuses on giving students the skills and training required to develop in the arts be it in front of the camera or behind. Students can achieve joy, fulfillment and confidence by building on their natural talents and abilities; this enables students to define what part of the industry they would be interested in further exploring and expanding where their talents lie.
