19 Mar THAILAND | SCHOOL OF FRONTIER MEDIA
The School of Frontier Media Thailand is a six-month, second-level YWAM school, under Create International Thailand. We are devoted to training individuals in using media forms to communicate the Gospel in ways that are both innovative and culturally relevant, with a particular focus on dramatic and documentary film.
The school has both a lecture and outreach phase. Starting with 3 months of training, you will be gleaning from professionals coming to you from all across the globe. We’ll be diving into various forms of media and learning how to effectively communicate cross-culturally. You will also be studying how specific people groups communicate while forming strategies on how to put that information into an audio/visual action plan. What’s more, the SFM is accredited with the UofN and is an elective of the College of Communications and the College of Christian Ministries.
We’ll then head out on field assignment for four weeks. Together, with the Create staff, students will work on a media project with the missionary or organization we are serving. We will be putting principles of cross-cultural communication to use as we write, direct, and film an evangelistic film, create mobilization resources, capture photographic images, and more! In some cases, you will be making the very first film ever made in that language!
Following the field assignment it’s full-speed ahead for two months of post-production, back at Create Thailand. Students and Create staff participate as a team putting together evangelistic and mobilisation tools for the people group.
Whether you are new to media or a skilled professional, if you want to use media for missions then the SFM is for you!
