The Manhattan Film Academy (MFA) at the Emirates Centre for Management & Information Technology in Dubai has signed an agreement with EVO; Apple’s authorised retailer in the UAE. According to the agreement, EVO will provide support for the Academy’s filmmaking workshops, which started earlier this year. MFA Dubai, which is a local collaborative of the New-York city based Film institute, claims to follow a script-to-screen approach that allows students to learn all aspects of filmmaking including screenwriting, cinematography, production, direction and post production. Students learn to make a short film in a four-week highly-intensive, hands-on workshop, taught by Oscar & Emmy nominated American and European filmmakers, according to Suresh Dinakaran, the man behind the initiative. “MFA’s faculty, which includes Hollywood filmmakers, swear by Apple G5s hardware and Final Cut Pro. That is why we approached EVO, which set up the entire post production suite for us and are on call 24X7,” he adds. Robert Tutak, writer & director as well as the founder of the Manhattan Film Academy says: “At the Manhattan Film Academy in New York, our faculty is most comfortable with Apple products. We have been using its hardware and software for post production purposes over the past several years and find them to be offering the highest degree of flexibility and output.”
