difference between Dracula and Edward Cullen isn’t their preference in food-
a.k.a who or what blood to suck - it’s actually the latter vampire’s ability to sparkle. Spot a real vampire from a fake one with today’s Groupon: P4239
instead of P8478 for a Practical Special Effects Workshop from the IAFT.
The International Academy of Film & Television (IAFT) offers courses that combine theory and application under the expert auspices of leading Hollywood filmmakers serving as faculty mentors. Located in the heart of Mactan Island, the tropical waterfront campus houses state-of-the-art facilities for both filming and post-production. This Groupon offers a two-day fun-filled course that serves as an excellent introduction for independent filmmakers to gain a practical understanding of the rudiments of Special Physical and Make-Up Effects. The course will provide a brief history of special effects in film and an actual demonstration of measures to create the effects necessary to illustrate and illuminate the action in a production. Learn how to make easy oozing blood, blood bags for realistic battle-slaying wounds, hero-worthy bullet hits on the chest and heads, traumatic injuries, cuts, razor and knife cut effects, and ever-so-famous easy vampire effects.
The talented mentor, Jay Lind is an American filmmaker, writer and actor who is perhaps best known for his dark and sensual film forays into the horror genre such as Velerie (2002) and To Dance With Death (2000). His training as a Michelangelo’s apprentice combined with studies of acting technique and psychology makes him an ideal guru for Goosebumps and shrieking film effects.
International Academy of Film and Television (IAFT) is a film school providing a new generation of aspiring filmmakers with a globally competitive education under the mentorship of leading industry professionals. The school offers each student hands-on experience using comprehensive equipment and facilities at a fraction of the cost of comparable institutions.

At the IAFT there is a great emphasis on hands-on training. There are short film projects every term. Students are restricted to shooting on campus during the first term, but may shoot off campus every term thereafter.

The school provides instruction to students from a wide variety of countries, enabling each learning moviemaker to gain different perspectives and create different films than he or she would if all the students were from, say, Hollywood.
