Beyond the theory and history of cinema, Wyza Media Academy places an emphasis on hands-on experience. Students gain invaluable experience directing and shooting their own films and serving as integral crew-members on other students’ films. In their numerous projects, students take on roles such as director, cinematographer, writer and editor and experience first-hand what it’s like to be a part of a film production. This hands-on experience in writing, directing, shooting, and editing is a large part of what makes Wyza Media Academy the best film school for so many students.
Based in the Seshego, Polokwane, the Academy’s film school offers innumerable opportunities for students to take full advantage of the many unique and singular locations offered by the city. From the first day of class, students take their cameras out in the city, gaining crucial knowledge in framing shots, using natural and direct lighting, and other essential techniques.
