08 Old School

Wolfgang Kaskeline (* 1897) was a director of promotional films for UFA, as well as a producer
and professor at the Berlin Weissensee School of Art and Design.

Originally a painter, the movie enthusiastic art teacher and commercial artist ended up in the field of animated cartoons. In the 1920’s, Wolfgang Kaskeline already produced his first animated cartoons.

Amongst others Kaskeline created the famous ‘Sarotti Mohr’, the little black boy who became the company’s trademark. With the beginning of sound film in the early 1930’s, he was one of the first directors to produce animated advertising films with sound. In 1949, Wolfgang Kaskeline founded the first film academy under private law in Berlin. In 1987 was the birth of the Kaskeline-Filmakademie in Berlin, managed by Heinz and Jutta Kaskeline. Based upon the approved ‘Hands-On’ method and the unique concept of the Kaskeline-Filmakademie, Art-on-the-Run Filmschool Berlin recreated the school both in a technical and theoretical sense to meet the requirements of the film industry of the 21st century.

09 FAQ

How often does this course take place in the year?

– The 6-month filmmaking course takes place twice a year, starting both in May as well as September. The schedule is published for each course on our website three months in advance.

What documents are required to apply for the course, and what happens after they've been sent?

– All you need is to fill out the online form and attach a link to a one-minute video. No extra documents are required! If you want to share with us any other previous projects that are longer in duration, please feel free to include the links in the comments section of the application form.

How can you support me with the Visa application?

– If you require a Visa in order to stay in Germany for more than three months, make sure to plan ahead of time. The Visa application procedure can last from a few weeks to a couple of months. The requirements are different for every country, therefore we can’t provide any general advice. If your application gets accepted we can provide you with an invitation letter to the course, which you can then submit together with your Visa application to the embassy of your country of origin.

– Please note that a student Visa is usually granted to full-time students and not participants of a training course like ours.

Will I receive a certificate at the end of the course?

– Yes, you’ll receive a certificate of successful completion if you attend the classes regularly and finish the exercises assigned to you through the course. However, what is of more value will be the chance you’ll have to start building your portfolio through the school’s projects.

Do you offer a Fast Track Course?

– At the moment we just offer the 6-month course, but we have considered starting a shorter program. Please stay tuned and check our website for updates!
