The film industry is changing, there is no doubt about that. Some people are happy about it, others aren’t. Regardless, the way films are made has been steadily changing with increasing rapidity since the development of affordable high definition cameras. It has meant a move away from large budget studio style productions to smaller productions with better managed resources. This is by no means a bad thing for the film industry. In fact it means a greater diversity of films being made and an opening up of the film industry to countries and individuals outside of the studio system. Studios of course still have their place and serve a vital role.
With this new flexibility it is more important than ever to develop the necessary skills. The move away from the studio system means apprenticeships and on the job training is no longer as available a route into the industry as it once was. Pulse College provide a number of film courses from their base in Dublin that teach a wide variety of skills for whatever aspect of the film industry you want to take part in.
