Our Approach

The Five Key Elements for Transformative Education

Cinema is an ever-evolving art form with constantly shifting technology, roles, and processes. To stay relevant, media training must flow alongside those changes, building adaptability into the core of the educational process.

In our decades of training experience, we have identified the five key elements that are critical to effective tech education, and we create every class and training program with these elements in mind.

 

AbelCine Educational Methodologies

Syllabus

We offer a fully customizable syllabus that is tailored to meet the needs of our students, whether we are training professionals who are brushing up on the latest technology or media students whose educational institutions have partnered with us for a full program. Our instructors are industry professionals with real-world experience who refresh our course list frequently.

 

Structure

Whether delivered via synchronous live stream, asynchronous online modules, or in person, our classes are presented in the formats best suited to their subject matter and most effective for engaging students. 

 

Environment

The learning environment is essential to high-level participation and collaboration in the classroom, so we give particular attention to the physical and virtual locations of our educational programming. AbelCine Learning Points in NY, LA, and Chicago are technically equipped to connect in-person and live stream students, record sessions for later reference, and build instructional materials. For virtual environments, we have partnered with the team at Smashcut to offer a premier online platform for film and media.

 

Engagement

Above all, our training programs are focused on keeping our students involved and connected. With cutting edge curriculum, knowledgeable instructors, and an emphasis on participation, we encourage our students to engage with the material and learn the skills necessary for success on the job. We also foster a sense of community and encourage students to collaborate with each other.

 

Inspiration

Filmmaking, at its heart, is a creative endeavor. The result of the craft is an emotional and mental connection between the filmmaker and audience that transcends time and distance. So as we teach the craft, we deliberately include special projects, guest artists, and community events in our programming to motivate our students to tap into their creative centers. With this inspiration, they can go out into the world with a greater perspective on the artistic process.
