Being a cinematographer is not just telling stories with images, it is provoking sensations in the viewer.
The camera, the light or the frames form a whole, but in order to achieve this goal, artistic vision must be combined with technical knowledge in order to create a unique audiovisual work.

Our way of teaching

It is not enough simply to acquire or improve talent and encourage creativity. The ECPV is a protective member of one of the most important associations in the sector, AEC, and thanks to this, an industry-based pedagogical system has been designed, where acquiring responsible behavior and learning to work as a team professionally is one of the priorities of our study method.

To acquire all this knowledge, students must learn in a practical way the operation of cameras, lighting equipment and know the treatment of light, color and their workflows.

Study plan

The study plan is divided into three school years, with special emphasis on the final degree project, which will be the shooting of a joint film made by last year students. This project will be developed during the three courses.

In addition, all students will shoot their own practices that will be evaluated by teachers and professionals in the sector.
