TestimonialsNew York City

"I have started training at Production Central in New York and so far I'm really enjoying the program. I'm assisting on set, editing, operating cameras, researching and learning something new everyday. The city too is absolutely inspiring and magnificent. It truly is a fantastic experience and I definitely advice all students or trainees to gain international experience. It's really worth it, well at least for me!"- Zoe K. (South Africa)

"The company you found for me is great place to work. Sometimes challenging but over all great. I am learning a lot and Isaac is also a very good Boss. I am enjoying my experience here and I am glad and thankful for this amazing opportunity. Thank you."- Fibian R.
