Making Of

For over eight years, we have been passing on our know-how to young filmmakers. Our workshops are specifically designed for schools and educational institutions.

For the education programme developed by Mar Vista Media designed for “integrating schools and students into new media”, professional filmmakers and lecturers teach small groups of school students everything they need to know about scriptwriting, production, direction, film technology/ editing and acting.

“The purpose is not only to encourage and support young people but also to take a proactive role in their development and make them aware of their potential; by working together with schools, universities, technical colleges and businesses, to give them opportunities to discover and develop their talent and to continue to grow when the course is finished.”

Past courses (selection):

Scripted Reality – Media credibility
funded by Medienanstalt Berlin Brandenburg (Berlin-Brandenburg Media Authority/ mabb)

Movie Academy – How to produce a film
funded by Sächsische Aufbaubank (Saxony State Development Bank)

International Media Workshop – Film for Conclusion
supported by People to People International 

German Media Week – Migration and Integration
supported by CJD e.v. (Christian Youth Village Foundation)

The largest, most historical and arguably most successful film studio in Europe, Studio Babelsberg, continues to provide us with invaluable assistance for almost all of our workshops. There is simply no better place to learn how films are made.
