A Rewarding Journey

Digital Academy – The Film School was founded as a result of a dream – to provide world class Film education in India. Since our humble beginnings in 2002, the journey we have undertaken and the standards we have achieved are a matter of immense pride for everyone associated with DA, its students and its management & faculty. I would like to share some details about our exciting journey so far. 

We began our journey with a handful of students, who we proudly call friends and associates. Our mission was never to churn out mere technicians, but to equip an individual to think beyond the ordinary. After all, creativity cannot be restricted within parameters. Our courses are structured to give hands-on training as well as an in-depth knowledge of the cinematic spectrum. Our strength lies in the fact that we conduct quality short-term courses, a feat that remains unparalleled in the industry. 

Over time, we have constantly reached higher to better our standards, to improve infrastructure and facilities, to broaden our curriculum and to have the best of the best to teach at DA. Today we use cutting edge technology, like Professional DV, HDV, Sony DSR 450, Sony D55, Beta, Red, 16 mm and 35 mm Arriflex cameras, Beta Recorders, FCP and more We also use both Protools and Nuendo recording suite using Yamaha DM1000 Digital Audio Workstation and also have a state of the art 5.1 surround studio among others.

Our student teacher ratio is an average of 1:12, which is remarkable as it gives you room for interaction with your instructors on a personal level and regular basis. Add to that, students coming in from all over India as well as globally from countries, such as New Zealand, England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Korea, Spain, Holland, Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Morocco, Sweden, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Bhutan, Nepal, Cameroon and Nigeria, to name a few. The academy provides a diverse and multicultural learning environment.

Our Faculty, both from India and abroad, comprises of some of the most respected and experienced professional across the Industry. Many of them have won National Awards ( Including the Silver Bear award at the Berlin Film Festival in 2009 for the best short).

We firmly believe in going the extra mile for all our students and hence placements are an integral part of our program. Our well-placed network has enabled us to set our students in ace Film and Television production houses. And it is pure pride that we feel on seeing them succeed. Ours has been an exciting and rewarding journey that continues to scale new heights. And we would love for any of you, who are passionate about Films, to come take this journey with us.
