HOW STUDENTS ARE INVOLVED







Branded Films believes in adopting a holistic approach to develop a meaningful, branded story. We define ‘holistic’ as encompassing a team effort to design, develop, communicate and visualize a branded story for a global market. We have our core team that has been with us since our earliest efforts that work as “keys.” These number from 4-7 people, pending the project and our needs. From there, we also employ a team of skilled students that we train prior to production to assist us.

What
The students learn all phases of development, preproduction, production, and post-production in a real setting.

Why
We retain students solely because we like to pass on the knowledge gained from many years of making films.


Where
Some of our films are shot in very rural, remote areas (Stockton, Missouri; Dominican Republic), and others are shot in urban environments (New York City, for example). Development and preproduction are usually completed in Orlando, FL, but have also been completed in other states or countries. Here is a list of each film and where they were made:

THE CLINIC

When
On average, each stage of the process equates to one semester. Development and preproduction sometimes fit within one semester together. We are always in the process of making movies, and some sections overlap. Currently, we are in a 5th stage, “deliverables,” for two projects, while also developing a new project.

How
Accepted students are added to the team in one of two ways.

1. They are trained for one or two semesters prior to production by us, then asked to join the production at a remote site, where we provide room and board, pending budget.
(ex. - For Flying Tiger, students trained in Indiana on campus for two semesters, then lived on location in Missouri for the one month of production during the Summer.)

2. Students are brought on for one semester and either find their own housing or are provided room and board (again, pending budget).
