Yes, I recommend this program

100% recommend FIRESOUL MEDIA EICTV course in Cuba

Quite simply, the most comprehensive, all-round documentary-making course.
A great crew of professionals, fellow student filmmakers, superb and material rich location! One can learn not only about filmmaking but about the world at large and delve into the deeper technical aspects of filmmaking on set. The skills acquired are broad and all encompassing. I'd like to thank everyone who made my experience so unique and unforgettable! I would definitely recommend FIRESOUL MEDIA. Dynamic, fun, organized, professional and on the ball.
