Mid-term Project shooting period is over! While our students are busy editing their footage, you can enjoy behind the scenes from their sets.
The topic of Mid-term Projects was either to shoot a commercial or a music video.
Big thanks to all the crews for their hard work, looking forward to the results :)

Ralph N.J. scholarship for prague film school students

The application deadline for scholarship assistance for year 2014 - 2015 and summer 2014 programs is December 1, 2013. No more applications are accepted or reviewed after this date.

The Foundation Board will examine all dossiers and make its selections as rapidly as possible (normally during the month of February). All candidates will notified of the Board's decision immediately.

LETTER ABOUT RALPH N.J. FOUNDATION
from Victor and Susan Jongeneel

Ralph Nicolas Jongeneel or "Ralph N.J", as he preferred to be known to his fellow filmmakers, was born in Switzerland in 1986. A dual citizen of the Netherlands and the USA, he also considered himself Swiss. He had a lively curiosity about the world and, by the time he was in his teens, he spoke 5 languages and had traveled to 29 countries.

From an early age, Ralph was fascinated by film. He would watch his favourite videos over and over until he knew them by heart. Every video that we rented had to be copied so that he could study it at leisure.
As he got older, he began to study films more seriously, building up his collection (he owned over 500 films) and going to various sources online and offline to improve his understanding of the subtleties of the discipline. He appropriated the family video camera and began to make films on his own.

He particularly liked underwater filming. After getting his scuba diving license at the age of 12, he would never leave for a holiday in warm destinations without his video camera and underwater housing. He made a number of films, included one called The Atomic Atoll, which he filmed in the Bikini Atoll. He had this posted on the Student Films site, having become an enthusiastic member of this filmmaker community.
You can see his films at the following links:

The Atomic Atoll

The Red Sea

The Kittens (short film, 2004)

I Wish, They Wish (short film, 2005)

Ralph first came to Prague Film School for the summer program in 2004, and again in 2005. He spent the happiest moments of his life studying cinema there and enjoying the companionship of like-minded film enthusiasts. He made two films there that became part of the dossier that he submitted to the ESEC film school in Paris. Ralph was accepted at ESEC and returned from a visit to the school, full of enthusiasm, two weeks before he was killed in a tragic accident in the Italian Swiss mountains. He had just turned 20.

After his death, we asked the many people who wished to do something in his memory to make a contribution to a fund to support young filmmakers. Thus, the Ralph N.J. Foundation was born. Its purpose is to help young people (aged 25 and under) who have demonstrated an interest in making a career in filmmaking to study at Prague Film School. We see this as a way to keep Ralph's memory alive while at the same time providing support to people whom Ralph would have liked to know.

Contributions to the Ralph N.J Foundation can be made at:
PostFinance (Swiss Post)
Account 17-673740-4
IBAN CH1309000000176737404
Account name Jongeneel C. V. and S. E., "Compte Ralph"

FUNDING REGULATIONS AND APPLICATION PROCEDURE

Ralph N.J. Scholarship covers up to 25% of tuition fees for all programs at Prague Film School. Candidates who do not expect to be able to find alternative sources of funding for the remaining costs should not apply.

Decisions regarding the Ralph N.J. Scholarship is taken by the Ralph N.J. Foundation.

Application Procedure:
Applicants for Ralph N.J. Scholarship submit two copies of their application, including examples of their film work; one copy is sent to Ralph N.J. Foundation (address listed below), the second copy is sent to Prague Film School. In addition to the standard application materials, scholarship applicants must include an essay justifying their financial need for the scholarship and explaining how they feel that their approach to cinema and filmmaking would help to support the Foundation's stated goal - to keep Ralph's memory alive.

The application deadline for scholarship assistance for summer 2014 programs and year 2014 - 2015 programs: December 1, 2013.

No more applications can be accepted after this date.
