AFDA to host a Holiday Workshop in July for Grade 11 and 12’s

AFDA (The South African School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance) Durban will host a Holiday Workshop on Thursday, 3 July from 08:30 to 16:30. This is an opportunity for young people thinking about their careers to experience what a day would be like in the film, television and entertainment industry.


The workshop is open to Grade 11 and 12’s or those who have recently matriculated.
The prospective students will get a sneak preview of how to acquire skills that are necessary to create great entertainment products in performance, film and television. This will be done through various masterclasses where participants will be given the opportunity to experience how to conceptualise a scene from a movie or TV show and then go about actually shooting a scene.
The AFDA Campus boasts an experienced line up of academic staff drawn from the film and live performance industries who will host the workshop.
Participants need to book their place and this works on a first come first serve basis. There is a nominal fee of R60 for the day which includes a light lunch.
AFDA will also host an Interview Day the day before the workshop on Wednesday, 2 July. This is an opportunity for prospective students to meet one on one with AFDA staff to discuss any queries they may have in detail, as well as get more information on the Undergraduate degree in Motion Picture Medium or Live Performance.
Prospective students can contact Milena or Purity at the Durban campus for more information and to make a booking. ( / 031 569 2252).
