At MAPS active industry practitioners teach students. We have trained 1000 alumni and produced 1000+ films (many award winning) in the past 35 years. A highly regarded brand, MAPS is recognised for preparing students artistically and technically for local and interstate companies, production houses and small employers.

Projects are developed and pitched, crews are formed and projects are realised from pre to post production. Each year, 50 to 60 films are made and students learn the practical aspects of filmmaking as well as the art of collaboration.
