Check out Filmbites students Connor Fantasia-Serve (Writer/Director) and Katrina Tap (Writer/Producer) being interviewed on Channel 10.  Their film Sold, made as part of the Intermediate level course, was selected for Revelation Film Festival 2017 out of 900 entries. Starring Jackson Wimhurst. Film Mentor: Wayne Nicholson.


Filmbites Filmmaking courses are designed so students progressively work through a series of curriculum, building on understanding and skills in a logical and practical manner.

While courses are designed for specific age groups, some students with advanced skills will be invited to join older classes.

Semester courses run for 2 terms (20 weeks) and have students undertake activities and exercises in the first term, then apply these new skills in a practical way in the second term when they work together with their class to film one or two short films.

Filming in Filmbites very own green screen studio in Malaga

Student testimonial:

I began at Filmbites in the Beginner Filmmaking course 3 years ago, and since then my favourite part of the week has been the few hours spent with my class. After my first year at Filmbites I was moved ahead to the Intermediate class. The course began with the fundamentals of film making, such as the different roles and basic filming techniques, and has progressed to be more in-depth across all areas of pre-production, production and post production such as the development of sophisticated scripts, working with actors, and festival submissions.
Filmbites has provided me with the resources and support to express myself and has opened possibilities for me that I would have not been able to achieve by myself. Not only does Filmbites provide the facilities and professional equipment, but has also given me the opportunity to work with actors and industry professionals. In 2017 I produced and co-wrote a film with my friend and classmate Connor Fantasia-Serve called Sold which was selected for the Perth International Revelation Film Festival program, an exciting achievement that may not have been possible without Filmbites. 
I am very grateful for the people I have met at Filmbites and my experience as a student has given me the confidence to pursue film studies, and to work in the film industry in the future. 
– Katrina Tap, 17 (Advanced Year 2)

Student testimonial:

My name is Jake Maringoni, I am 16 and I’ve been coming to Filmbites for a semester now. I can honestly say it has been one of the best experiences of my life.

I have learnt a great many things from Filmbites such as how filming works, who does what, writing a story and most importantly how the editing works and the overall presentation. At Filmbites, I got to meet a lot of new friends that I am glad to have met, people I can get along with and actually feel like I belong.

When I go to Filmbites, we usually get into two smaller groups with our own group name, secret handshake and catchphrase, this helps in getting to know each other. My instructor Chris has been an incredible help to me and others and has taught me a lot of skills that will help me in the future. When I leave school, I hope to become director and a writer like Woody Allen or Quentin Tarantino because I enjoy creating something that people will watch. Even if they hate it, I’ll know that they watched it and had their own opinion about it. It is because of Filmbites that I will be able to achieve this goal. I am very glad to have found out about Filmbites because I fear without them, I would not be the person I am today.

Parent feedback:

We will always have very fond memories of our time at Filmbites – what a massive role you guys have played in Josiah’s life and future career!  Thank you all from the bottom of hearts! J.S.
