IT Academy for filmmakers

Responding to the needs of specialists, together with Institute of Information Technologies and Management, we launch the edition of the IT Academy for specialists in the film industry. Thanks to cooperation, we are able to extend and enhance the program by adding issues connected with conducting the projects’ office and taking movie shots from unmanned aerial vehicles.
In the first stage of the study, the basics of the Python programming language will be discussed.
Then knowledge will be expanded with particular attention to aspects specific to the film industry. Lua's language will also be discussed.
Students will be acquainted with professional film equipment, and will also have the opportunity to participate in classes on conducting projects using agile methodologies, information security or image compression.

A detailed program can be found in the Academy Program tab.
The Academy students will visit at least one real movie set.

Currently, the recruitment for the Academy is in progress. The nearest edition will start in October 2020.
