FILM & TV COURSES
In collaboration with the National Film and Television School (NFTS), Oxbelly
provides a series of short courses designed to cover existing needs in the Greek audiovisual
industry. The courses are conducted by NFTS instructors.
The program is addressed to professionals who are based in Greece and want to broaden and deepen their skills and expertise, as well as people who are strongly interested in becoming part of the film industry.
Based in Greece and active internationally, Oxbelly and its sister company Faliro House Productions are ideally positioned to identify and help address the educational needs of the local industry and support it in its growth.
Greece’s newly established 40% cash rebate, together with its celebrated natural beauty and historical heritage and the professionalism of its crews, have made Greece one of the most appealing destinations worldwide for film and episodic content production. This trend has created an ever-increasing demand for well-trained local professionals.
To help meet that demand, Oxbelly established an educational partnership with the National Film and Television School, the leading institution of its kind in Europe. NFTS has been presented in the Guardian newspaper as the ‘World’s Best Film School’ and has received the 2018 BAFTA for Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema. Its graduates include Oscar-winning cinematographer Roger Deakins, Oscar winning animator Nick Park, creator of Wallace & Gromit, and acclaimed directors Lynne Ramsay (You Were Never Really Here, We Need to Talk About Kevin) and David Yates (the Harry Potter series, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) among others.
Since 2021, the joint program has provided 15 courses to 192 participants.
In December 2021, the joint program provided three online courses: Production Coordination, Post Production Supervision and Budgeting on Movie Magic.
Starting November 2022 we will additionally provide the following courses: Acting for the Screen, Script Analysis, Script Reading and Reporting, Head of Production, Location Management and Introduction to Post Production.
