Post-Production


Ontario Graduate Certificate


Program Code: 10371

Campus: North

Length: 3 semesters starting in September

Skilled post-production professionals are vital  to the film, television and digital media industries. With technology as its main focus, our program gives students extensive training in the  industry-standard post-production software, hardware, workflows and distribution platforms needed to thrive in the post-production industry in areas including:

  • digital asset delivery
  • multi-platform content editing
  • picture editing
  • sound editing and mixing
  • visual effects

Through lectures, hands-on practice and an invaluable work placement, students learn the technical and aesthetic aspects of post-production work - as well as the fundamentals of managing a freelance career, including how to make professional contacts, engage with potential employers and produce a marketable portfolio website.

Work Placement

This program includes a mandatory work placement. We work with you to find a suitable placement in your chosen field of specialization, allowing you to apply the skills you’ve learned in a professional environment. Placements will take place in post-production houses and media companies in Toronto. Work placements are typically unpaid but provide you with the opportunity to further your knowledge in your chosen field and begin to build your resumé and network of professional contacts.
