I'm a newbie filmmaker and didn't know where to start so this course was right up my alley. Great teachers, good advice and I finished this course knowing I could make some great films and even have the confidence to do some freelance film work. Thanks so much for helping me out.. well worth the money spent!

I learnt so much here and trust me I've been to so many courses in Sydney. If you want to learn a lot in a short span of time, Australian Film Base is the place to go. The price justifies the knowledge and experience you will get once you complete this and as for me I was able to get a job in the film industry thanks to these guys.

So thankful I found this place. Me and my mate needed a fast but detailed crash course on film-making as we are looking to start our own film production company (mainly music videos). Learnt a lot from editing techniques, setting up the right angles, how to do deal with actors as well as got to meet some cool film industry teachers. Pretty epic and I also got to network with other people that went there! Thought I'd just come on here and write my honest opinion about this place and how much it has helped us stay ahead of the competition. Good luck everybody.

It is so helpful that the film course is on Tuesday Nights and Some Saturdays meaning that one can keep the day job. You learn so much in such a short time. On night one, you meet your fellow course people and they are a mix of beginners and some experienced people who have made short films before. The instructor told us that we would make a film in 4 months and it is hard to believe. But it happened and we had a 12 minute film on the to screen at the Final Night Event with our friends and family and the actors and people from past courses. It was a great feeling of achievement. It is amazing but you learn by doing, by writing a screenplay by casting the film by doing all the preproduction and by shooting on location over three Saturdays. So much fun. For Value for money this course has it in spades. I highly recommend that you do the course!

I've taken many quick courses about filmmaking and this one is by far the best in Sydney. Really in-depth, quality instructors that have knowledge and field experience that are down to earth and really made me feel at home (I had a lot of questions). I left the course more confident in myself to take on the film industry! Everything from lighting to camera angles.. I learnt so much!!

I've been keen to get into filmmaking but wasn't to sure what I really want to be. Editor? Director? or mabye grip? Well I learnt a lot in 4 months and it really helped me map out my goals on the position I wanted to endeavour in in the film industry. Loved every single day here! Peace, Francis.
