Joint Project of Channel One Russia, New York Film Academy, and the HSE

On April 7, 2013, Channel One Russia, together with the New York Film Academy and the Higher School of Economics, will launch the course ‘Modern Production in Cinema and Television’.

This course is for those who have dedicated or want to dedicate their lives to cinema and television. It offers a unique opportunity to unite the theory of American film production with the practice of Russia’s largest TV network.

Master classes and lecture cycles will be delivered by leading American film and TV producers, directors, and writers, such as Paul Brown, Scott Marshall, and Lydia Cedrone, as well as top executives from Channel One and the leading production companies that work with the channel. We are planning master classes led by Konstantin Ernst, CEO of Channel One; Alexander Faifman, General Producer at Channel One; Anatoly Maximov (Direktsiya Kino); Alexander Akopov (Amedia); Djanik Faiziev; Alexander Levin (Teleformat); and others.

The top graduates of the course will be invited for an internship at Channel One Russia.
