CityU forges bright sparks with Beijing Film Academy
"The BFA is particularly interested in our advanced digital technology, and we believe that our students can learn a lot from their work in performing arts and motion picture production," said Mr Smith. Four SCM students currently at the BFA also met the CityU delegation and reported a positive learning experience. "The new experience has encouraged me to become more outgoing,"one student said.
Ties with BFA were formed when SCM Assistant Professors Lester Chan and Julian Lee lead a group of students to visit the academy in 2000. Subsequent delegations and exchanges followed. In 2002, a formal student exchange programme began, each institution sending four students. It is believed that SCM students can benefit from the cultural content and BFA students can further their skill in digital animation.
