“Cebu’s rich culture and expanding arts, coupled with Filipino hospitality, ensure that our students have ready environment for their creative pursuits. Apart from producing a wealth of talented filmmakers, another goal of FMA is to make Cebu City the Film City of the South,” the CEO said.
CEBU CITY- Situated at an ideal strategic location in Gen Maxilom at the old Scared Heart for Boys, Film and Medial Arts International Academy, the second accredited international vocational in Cebu region, opens its doors for aspiring future filmmakers on March 16, 2015. This world-class film and animation school offers program focusing on the technical crafts be in need to make digital films with the Diploma in Film and Creative Media Arts and the Diploma in 3D Animation.
The school commits to furnish students with all the important crafts for digital filmmaking. In addition, the school has the best industry-seasoned instructors knowledgeable in their craft, giving the students very practical pedagogy as a preparation to the professional world of film and television after they finished the course.
“We want to enable students to gain competency in all the technical crafts of digital filmmaking, including cinematography, editing, and sound recording/mixing.” said, FMA Chief Executive Officer, Jeanette Tongoy.
“To us, the only way to produce professionally-skilled students is to give them adequate hands-on production experience, as much as they can, instructed by industry professionals, to handle the latest state-of-the-art film and sound equipment which we are very proud to have.” Tagonoy added.
FMA is an art school that focuses on giving out comprehensive technical training without over powering the art side. As they provide the best and most complete equipment in Cebu region, they are positive in giving students a concrete training in the technical and production aspects that helps them build a career as they graduate and step out to the real world. The school also wants students to create a place that allows them to do movies they can only make- presenting and expressing stories their style in their natural language which is not offered to most film schools. On the other hand, the school is on the works of negotiating for possible collaboration with high schools in Cebu as the country is working on the implementation of Department of Education’s K-12 program. As of the moment, FMA already sent a proposal for the k-12 program to Sacred Heart School- Ateneo de Cebu and St. Theressa’s College- if accepted, the proposed program will partake on June 2017.
