    Wait, what’s the difference between this and the ‘student film’?

    • Hey Mark! The student film is the project that the students themselves create from scratch during the academy (and work as production heads on). This film is the “official production” that they get to work on as production assistants to get experience what it’s like an an actual live film set!

        Ok, thanks.
