let's talk about the film & graphic design course.

 
 
 

When you want the movies in your mind to move from imagination to reality.

When you are grateful for the creativity of God, you value the production you are creating and the gift God has given you. We want to see the movies in your mind move from imagination to production and the natural talent you have for production and graphic design improved to such excellent heights that you become an invaluable contributor and member of the film industry.

At C3 Creative Arts College our Film & Graphic Design course will equip you with the creative and technical skills to produce for television and to design for creative services and productions. We believe that our learning environment will help you keep Christ at the centre of your life as you create and produce shows, graphics and services for a secular audience.

Learning to capture the precise elements of the story rather than just shooting footage is what this course offers. This is for students who perceive the world through a lens and want to respond to it visually. There are things that one can learn in isolation but learning to tell stories with other storytellers inspires and challenges you in a way that can’t happen when learning alone.
