FILM FACULTY SPOTLIGHT: TRENT DUNCAN’S BEST ADVICE ON FILM SCHOOL


Get the inside story on F.I.R.S.T. Institute’s Digital Filmmaking and Video Production program from film school faculty member Trent Duncan. It takes guts to follow your passion, but it also takes discipline, and Duncan is a man with both. From his tours in the military to his time as a music video producer, Duncan’s experiences have led him all over the world and home again to Orlando where he helps students get the most out of their time filmmaking at the Institute.


AN EXPERT IN HIS FIELD

With degrees in both Business Marketing and Film Production Technology, Trent Duncan is an expert in filmmaking and getting content seen by the right people! After spending five years in the military, during which time he produced several documentaries that aired on the Discovery and Military channels, Duncan moved to Hollywood to pursue diverse projects including web-series, shorts, and music videos. Nowadays, after holding many careers in film, he operates his own production company in Orlando, but he is also dedicated to making time for his students at F.I.R.S.T. Institute.

SMALL CLASS SIZES AND THE BENEFITS OF ONE-ON-ONE INTERACTION

The best part of teaching at F.I.R.S.T. Institute, says Duncan, is the level of one-on-one attention he is able to offer his students. Small class sizes and the Institute’s focus on learning-by-doing means that film school students get the “solid foundation they need to be successful” in the film industry. Duncan’s favorite project of the year for the film school students is the Narrative Short Film, which has him working directly with students through the planning, shooting, and post-production phases of the process. Helping creative minds take a concept through to completion brings new challenges and rewards every time.
