TV and Film

We really can say we are one of the best!

Abbotsford Film Students have been #1 in Skills Canada twice in the last 5 years

The Vancouver region is sometimes called Hollywood North because of the huge film industry here.   Abbotsford is increasingly popular as a production destination, creating considerable demand for jobs in this industry. 

Using industry standard technology and software, students learn to design and produce T.V. broadcasts and film productions. 

iMovie HD, iStop Motion and Final Cut Express

Some of the techniques include 

  • Storyboarding and composition
  • Working with camera angles, time and space
  • Set lighting
  • Multi-track recording for soundtracks and sound effects
  • Greenscreen and special effects / CGI / stop motion photography
  • Editing 

Portfolios are an important part of applying for universities and jobs.  Students learn to develop professional presentations of their work to help them move to the next level in their career.  Graduates are now working with local and national TV stations.
