Applications are now open for the 6-week immersive program for October 1 - November 12 at Observatory Academy.
Students must speak English and express a dedication and passion for exploring documentary film production through lean production processes. Candidates for the Academy will be interviewed in English by an Admissions Committee member in person or online.
Each applicant must crave to engage in both the creative and business components of production in order to graduate successfully from the Academy. The applicant must communicate effectively and work collaboratively in our fast paced, creative atmosphere.
Recruitment prior to enrollment is conducted in English. To enroll in the Academy, each student must sign an enrollment contract that features our terms and conditions and all cancellation and refund policies. If English is not the student's primary language, and the student is unable to understand the terms and conditions of the enrollment contract, the student will have the right to obtain a clear explanation of the terms and conditions and all cancellation and refund policies in his or her primary language.
Please note that acceptance to the Observatory Academy is based upon applicant information and details received during the entire admissions process. Nonetheless, if a student, after having been accepted prior to starting classes, demonstrates that he or she is not completely equipped to initiate studies at the Academy, Observatory Academy will work with the student to determine a correct course of action.
No longer do you need a degree to make good documentaries.
