The Windsor Centre for Film, Digital Media & the Creative Arts has partnered with Westervelt College (link to Westervelt here) to offer a 12-month diploma program in Storytelling for the Digital Age, where students will learn the art and craft of communication by learning how to tell stories, operate professional equipment, and learn the latest audiovisual software and technology. Students will develop their own entrepreneurial and artistic voice by working closely with highly skilled instructors in a hands-on learning environment.
Financial Aid is available to those interested in applying for the Storytelling for the Digital Age program at Westervelt College.
We have bursaries in the amount of $10,000 available for this program for financially disadvantaged persons from traditionally underrepresented groups in the industry (Black, Indigenous, people of colour, women, youth, LGBTQ2+, and individuals with disabilities). If you reside in Windsor-Essex, Chatham-Kent, or Sarnia-Lambton, you may qualify. To learn more, email us at email@example.com.
Different learning experiences.
We want to help you succeed.
We offer a variety of class types that will not only improve your skills but also give you the opportunity for professional growth and personal success!
Our classes, seminars and workshops offer students an opportunity to learn from some of the region’s most acclaimed and accomplished professionals on a range of specialized topics, including directing, cinematography, producing, acting, editing, music, and sound design. They are generally free, or offered at a very affordable price.
Internships and Work Placements
Our internship opportunities connect students with experienced local businesses and organizations to help them develop or hone key industry skills. The internship program gives students a foot in the door to a network of local and regional production companies, independent freelancers, and boutique studios.
Working closely with local business owners and media professionals, students have an opportunity to develop their skills under the supervision of an experienced mentor who will guide them on creative and entrepreneurial decisions. The mentorship program is designed to give students and emerging professionals one-on-one guidance to build a network and skill sets. If you are in need of a mentor please let us know.
