The future of film production in Greece is looking very promising. It is our duty to support it. This conviction is part of AUTHORWAVE’s philosophy, therefore we came up with ways to be even more active in other levels beyond our continuous investments.
“The essence of the future can be found where new film and television ideas are born; with the Younger Generation. Its strengthening and support was a key element and an integral part of our vision”, says Panos Bisdas, CEO/Founder of AUTHORWAVE.
“Stavrakos Hellenic Cinema and Television School firmly believes in the dynamic of the audiovisual field and aims at continuously strengthening and utilizing the skills of new creators”, states Program Director Mrs. Gianna Lambropoulou.
We are extremely happy because we share the same vision with Stavrakos School/H.C.T.S.S – this historic School for Cinema and Television – since we believe in the necessity of cinema training in all levels.
Together we have planned ways of fortifying students, in order to offer them more aids for their future. Namely, AUTHORWAVE will offer:
Hands-on masterclasses around the Audiovisual and Color Grading fields, offered by Panos Bisdas – CEO/Founder and Manos Chamilakis – Senior Colorist.
–Field trips at AUTHORWAVES studios
Visitations at AUTHORWAVE’s state-of-the-art studios. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the available technology and the potential of audiovisual mediums, as well as the past, present, and future of Post Production.
This year, the H.C.T.S.S AWARD powered by AUTHORWAVE will be awarded to one of the School’s students (all departments) who will receive color grading services for their film.
-Company training and scholarship provided by AUTHORWAVE
One or two graduates will receive company training and full-time employment after evaluation at AUTHORWAVE. The position is available for a specific time span with the option for renewal based on evaluation.
