“My organisation has been associated with Sydney Film School Pty Ltd since 2004. We have employed a number of talented Sydney Film School Screen, Media Diploma and Advanced Diploma programs graduates over the years as part of our rental and production teams. Sydney Film School graduates can be relied on to be deployed in film and TV productions with professional level competencies in screen production, directing, cinematography, sound and editing. These graduates have proved themselves to be an asset to the business at an early stage in a way that reflected on them favourably compared to other junior applicants. “
