Professional Cinematography

Sixteen by Nine Media Centre is offering a professional cinematography course, where students can learn all the technical and creative aspects of cinematography.

The film and television industry is in constant need of people who are well-versed in the technical operation as well as the creative aesthetics of using cameras and lights to make compelling audiovisual content. Also, with the digital revolution, a large number of people now have access to good cameras that come at a fraction of the cost of a traditional film camera. With the growing usage of platforms such as YouTube, aspiring film makers and content creators can now showcase their content and creativity to a large audience at the click of a button.

So if you aspire to become a professional cinematographer or a content creator, you now have access to high-quality cameras, strong video hosting platforms, and a dedicated audience. The only thing missing is the necessary training in audiovisual content creation, and Sixteen by Nine Media Center has designed this Professional Cinematography Course to fill in this gap.
