CUSTOM WORKSHOPS

Main Film also provides custom workshops to individuals and groups with specific training requirements. Private and semi-private workshops cover the topics you would need, either technical or general. Here are examples of workshops given in the last few months: basic camera handling (analogic or digital), introduction to Final Cut X, introduction to Dragonframe and After Effects, advanced cinematography, hand processing, crowdfunding campaigns, documentary script doctoring, international coproduction principles, scratch and painting on celluloid, etc.

Training is available in French or in English. Membership is not required.

The cost for personalized training is $50 per hour for an individual, for a minimum of two hours. For each additional participant, the cost is $20 per hour which lowers the general cost per person. Additional costs may be applied for material needs (chemicals).
