Johannesburg is South Africa's television production hub. AFDA was established in Johannesburg in 1994 and is situated on a 10,000 square metre campus within a stone's throw of the national TV broadcaster, the SABC. Also known as Egoli ('place of gold') or Jozi, it is South Africa's go-to-go TV production kitchen, and enjoys sunny weather all year round. Fondly known as Jo'burgers, the six million strong population of this vibrant melting pot includes all major Southern African ethnicities, plus thousands of Western, Eastern and Central Africans and EU residents.
AFDA Cape Town campus is situated in Observatory on a 7000 square metre campus in an area just outside the central business district. Cape Town, the Mother City, is widely recognised as one of the most beautiful places on earth. It is home to three world heritage sites: the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Table Mountain and Robben Island. The city's pristine beaches and watersports havens, and the waters around the Cape Peninsula are a whale-watchers paradise. Established in 2003, AFDA Cape Town is situated in Observatory on a 7000 square metre site in a quaint historical area just outside the CBD where Victorian architecture, industrial enterprise and trendy watering holes form a fascinating and eclectic mix. The Cape Town film industry provides infrastructure and service excellence to international feature film and commercial productions. The glorious locations, the 15-hour long summer days, the intensity of the light, the world class facilities, the favourable exchange rate and the top-notch technical film crews all combine to make Cape Town one of the first choices for overseas productions.
AFDA Durban campus was established in 2013 opened its doors on the 4th February 2013 with the pioneering group of 1st years. AFDA Durban is situated in the Durban North area and suburb of Glen Anil (#2A Highdale Road, Glen Anil, Durban North). The 3 story building is an ex municipal building that is and will be converted over the next 4 years into a campus to accommodate approximately 350 students studying film, TV, music and acting over 4 year groups of students. The campus is accessible from Umhlanga Rocks drive at the BP Station which leads to Highdale Road along Sagewood Way. Alternately you can access the campus from the R102 and taking the Old North Coast Road (see Total Garage), first right onto Cypress Drive, first left onto Wistaria Grove where you will then reach Highdale Road. AFDA Durban may be the youngest of campuses but is rich with diverse culture and a strong work ethic and ethos on the student body taking into account the values of AFDA: Passion, Integrity, Hard Work, Reliability and Humility. We are in the heart of Durban taking in the rich sub-cultures and flavours of Kwazulu Natal, injecting it into our projects. The campus includes studios, lecture rooms, rehearsal rooms, recreational area, staff and administration area, storage and parking facilities and have all the necessary stage, film, TV and music equipment required for each year of study
AFDA has developed a learning programme that mixes Core Classes with film discipline skills.
The first year offers a foundation and focuses on identifying each student's talents. The second year focuses on the entertainment medium, and increase the students' understanding of the 'nuts and bolts' of the motion picture and live performance courses. The third year identifies and develop each learner's artistic expression, while the fourth year teaches commercial management of the learner's chosen discipline.
In addition to the compulsory Core Course, AFDA offers disciplines which undergraduate students may choose a combination of, allowing them to specialize in an area of film making or performance. These include:
AFDA Honours students interact with the industry, their films are occasionally broadcast on M-net and SABC. The Honours thesis is a document with direct correlation to the student's chosen subject or that is focused on Master of Fine Arts Motion Picture (MFA).
The AFDA Masters of Fine Arts in Motion Picture degree provides students with the opportunity to create a feature length film.
AFDA films have been exhibited at various international festivals and have been broadcast worldwide, some winning awards including a prized Oscar.
At the 33rd annual Student Academy Awards, in June 2006, the AFDA production Elalini, directed by Tristan Holmes, won the award for Best Foreign Film. This is the first time that this award has been given to a South African film school.
AFDA campuses have 16mm super sixteen and 35mm film cameras as well as digital industry standard cameras and camera accessories, lenses and lighting equipment.
AFDA's OBU (Outside Broadcasting Unit) is a mobile television vehicle. The unit enables AFDA to train students for multi-camera recording, such as live television. The unit has a three-camera rig using JVC HDV (high-definition) cameras, two of which are linked via a control cable system and one which is linked via a fibre optic system. This allows it to be operated at a distance of 300m from the vehicle. All cameras are remote controlled by camera control units (CCUs).
A Digital Broadcast Pix Switcher cuts between cameras and insert graphics, clips and chroma key requirements in real time. Final programme material is recorded onto hard disk drive via a Deck Link Multi Bridge interface. The rig has a separate audio station with a digital audio desk to control all audio inputs and mix down to final programme material.
