Trips to Prague for Media & Film Studies Students
Also known as the "European Hollywood" the Czech Republic and the world famous Barrandov Film Studio are a hub for film talent this side of the Atlantic. Foreign film producers often use Barrandov not only because of the relatively low costs but also because of the recognised skill of Czech professionals, not to mention the beautiful Prague scenery. Film students will enjoy the chance to tour the sets and ask questions of the producers.
TV Studios and Radio broadcasters also open their doors to visitors who give an insight into production methods and the broadcasting suites followed by the chance to quiz the professionals. A college trip to Prague is an unusual, but nevertheless internationally renowned, destination for media and film students.
