The Philosophy

One man sitting alone under a tree can conceive a film. Between the inspiration and its realization stand a battalion of specialized technicians, state of the art equipment, and the need for a small fortune to mobilize both men and equipment in the service of his dream.

The Magic in Motion (MIM) was founded six years ago on a belief that top quality education in filmmaking should be accessible to anyone with the drive and ambition to make films.

It is the belief of the Magic in Motion that the most significant art form of our time is the moving image. Through the medium of film, individuals, communities, and nations express their most profound visions of humanity to the world.

MIM was designed for a new generation of filmmakers who share a common passion and want to learn by making their own films through hands-on intensive programs.

MIM also designs and conducts courses for different groups of people, corporate or otherwise, catering to their specialized requirements.

Learning to be a filmmaker, is not done 'by the numbers'. It is done by immersion in the process and by knowing the 'why's' that teach the 'how's'. It is done by trial and error, hands- on experience, feedback and correction, and questions and answers.

A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet.
