Students at IMI
If you really want to learn something and almost everything about filmmaking; my advice to you is don't think, just join the IMI Certificate program. It is the best investment I ever made in my life till date; and trust me when I say this because I have done many short term courses and know what kind of hell it is to complete the course and yet feel unsatisfied. At IMI, from the first day in class you get the vibe that you will learn something here.
