INTENZIO -10 WEEKS

Learn to make film during a ten-week intensive evening course! Intenzio teaches you the basics of the different disciplines – script, direction, cinematography, sound, editing and production – that you need to make film.

You who have started to take the first serious steps towards filmmaking surely know how difficult it is to move on to a higher level on your own. Film is a collective art form. You need knowledge, you need practice and you need a network of like-minded people if you want the result to be better and with a higher level. That is our goal with Intenzio.

The next course will start in January 2021. The deadline to apply is December 14th.

READ WHAT FORMER PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT THE COURSE

After attending a one-year film program at another school, I felt that that education was not enough to move on. Then I started looking for good schools and educations in film, and since I am a person who wants to learn through practice and preferably for a shorter time, Intenzio suited me perfectly.
I started at Stockholm Film School and it was exactly what I was looking for and that suited me best. I have met wonderful teachers as well as fellow students whom
I still have contact with and write and make short films and art films together. I have never regretted my decision. Stockholm Film School and Intenzio were for me the best choice among all film education.
If you are thinking about starting a film education, I highly recommend Stockholm Film School.

Azita Nia, filmmaker

I was 64 when I studied Intenzio in 2016, and started without any previous experience or knowledge of filmmaking. Intenzio is a very ambitious introduction to film production and the film industry. You learn the entire chain from script writing to post production. To get the maximum out of this short and very intensive course offered by Stockholm Film School, I needed a 100% commitment of days, evenings and weekends. It was a lot of hard work but incredibly instructive. All teachers were very experienced in their respective fields, which resulted in lessons, tutoring and all feedback being terrific.
After the course, it was no problem for me to take on assignments as a photographer and to handle sound and light as well as participate in castings and film preparations. So far, I have filmed and cut two pilots into upcoming feature films, three documentaries and a number of short films for companies and associations’ websites. I can honestly recommend Intenzio to anyone who is interested in film production and is ready to spend the time required for this intensive course.

Lars af Sillén, former officer, now artist and filmmaker

The name ‘Intenzio’ is definitely how the course feels as it really is an intense course in its true sense. This means, of course, that it is a very demanding course at the same time.
But with that being said, it is also a very rewarding course that in a very short time succeeds in giving a taste of most parts of a film production, both creative and the practical. From the very beginning, it is a focus on learning by doing and although it can sometimes feel like being thrown into the deep part of the pool without being able to swim, the teachers are there to guide you.
Since Intenzio focuses on getting the students to do things themselves, the course will probably also depend on how much time you invest in it, but if you can, you have actually made your first short film when the course is over. For me, I needed to recover for a week after the course, but at the same time was hungry for more.
