Seoul is the largest and most important city in Korea. It is the world’s 11th largest economy and is home to 11 million residents. The city is dynamic and ever changing and mixes a modern urbanity with a rich history. The culture of this Asian city is complex mixture of energy, Confucian rules and democratic values.
While one can find every modern convenience in Seoul, the mighty fortress wall and gates still stand, as do old palaces, tombs and royal shrines. Arts abound in Seoul with traditional cultural performances, folk museums and folk villages. Seoul hosts numerous small festivals, and at any time of the year, there are cultural events taking place.
One can dine in multitude of restaurants that offer traditional Korean cuisine and ambience with seating on floor cushions and table-top barbecues. Or one can feast at Western-style restaurant, as well as other ethnic eateries including Japanese and Chinese.
There are wonderful areas to explore just beyond the city including the Demilitarized Zone, Suwon’s World Heritage fortress, and the beaches of the West Sea islands. Seoul is a fantastic place to learn film and be inspired.
Four Week Digital Filmmaking Workshop
During the Four-week Digital Filmmaking Workshop, you will write, shoot, direct, and edit your own short films. Your teachers will demystify the craft of digital filmmaking production and challenge you to use the medium to its best advantage.
Students work in three to four person crews to complete each film. Every student directs three films. When their colleagues direct, students rotate among the key crew positions.
At the end of the course, the final films are celebrated in a screening open to cast, crew, friends and family. All students who successfully complete the workshop will receive a New York Film Academy Diploma and a DVD copy of their film.
