Here is one of many examples of a Film Course Success Story.

Paul Condoleon  attended our weekend film School in 2009 and immediately produced "Dealing with Destiny" an 82 minute feature film shot on the amazing Red Camera. He made his living as a GP Doctor and had never made a film before.    Here is what he said about our Film Course.

"Awesome course. Straight after the course I produced my first feature film 'Dealing with Destiny'.  The Film was released this year (2011) in Hoyts Cinema. This is all thanks to the Sydney Film Base Film Course.  You want the fast way to film success, take the weekend film school"  Paul Condoleon 

Here is the Trailer for Paul Condoleon's first film  "Dealing with Destiny" made straight after the course

What people say about the Weekend Film School 

Our feedback is exceptional  on our Weekend Film School: Some examples of Very Real Testimonials written in the feedback sheets.   

Probir Duitt

"To put it bluntly this course is an inspiration, I still can't believe how much we got through. I'm still bouncing off the walls with excitement and have already lined up two collaborations with fellow students. Colm's teaching makes dreams come true." - Probir Dutt, Rok Starr Films

"Colm’s passion for filmmaking is infectious, by around lunchtime, the feeling was “I can do this, doesn’t sound too hard.   The knowledge and skills gained from Colm, through his years of industry experience, certainly fast tracked my own journey into filmmaking, primarily now as a cinematographer for numerous productions, including webseries', short films and features… including one recent short film, written & directed by Shailla Quadra (Shailla is also a beneficiary of Colm’s training), that has been selected for and will premiere at this year’s 2011 New York City International Film Festival."

Jack Kelly:  Freelance Cinematographer
