OFTA’s “Set Ready” foundation course provides you with practical real world knowledge of how a professional film and TV production with 80+ crew members operates. We’re not going to be teaching you how to direct, edit, run camera or sound, but rather prepare you for your first set of jobs on a film set and make sure you are ready to impress on day one.
With so much going into making a movie, and hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line each and every day of filming, it is paramount that each crew member fully understands their area of responsibility and is ready to take full ownership over their assigned role.
Set Ready is a mandatory requirement for those wishing to move onto OFTA specialization courses and on-set experience. This includes those who may already have held positions on lower budget film sets as we need to ensure all gaps in knowledge are covered and visiting productions can feel confident that in employing an OFTA graduate they are getting the very best of the best.
The film 101 course fee is $1,200. There is a compulsory, non-refundable $15 application fee which goes against your course fee. Once you have been accepted, a non-refundable deposit of $495 is then required against the cost of your fees to hold your place. The final $735 is due 5 days before your first class.
All production costs are included in the course fees, including the use of School facilities and equipment.
