Needless to say the students are learning the basics of film making in all its stages, pre-production, production and post production. As Robert Altman said, "Filmmaking is a chance to live many lifetimes" and Media Studies enables the students to comprehend and pursue one more career option when they leave school to begin the rest of their life.
