Success Story

Michael Da Silva

Recent Trebas Graduate Earns Exciting Employment in Film

Just months after graduating, Michael Da Silva is hired by Cinemavault Film Company

Trebas Institute graduate Michael Da Silva recently became the latest from the school's Film and Television Program to find related employment in the film industry. Only months after graduating, Da Silva was hired by Cinemavault, a film and television distribution company, where he is working in Acquisitions.
The Film and Television Production Program at Trebas features a "hands-on" approach to ensure graduates are resourceful, versatile, and accomplished. "At Trebas, the condensed program really mirrors the real world," says Da Silva."The industry moves very fast, and it’s an advantage to be part of a program that sets that pace from the beginning. Other programs can spend three or four years before even touching a camera. At Trebas, you learn what you need to learn, and you move on."
Diploma programs at Trebas are designed by industry experts and regularly revised for success in today's competitive job market. Access to industry standard facilities and equipment encourages students to develop their expertise before graduation. "You get your hands dirty with several productions," confirms Da Silva. "I worked on four, which was more than York, Humber, or U of T. I was ahead because I took all of the basics we learned in class, and expanded on them in my own time. Instead of spending months of class on one thing, I learned enough so that I could teach myself, which is how you really learn anything in the field." 
This persistence and dedication is instilled in Trebas students by instructors who are committed to sharing their passion. "We recognize that our programs are rigorous and require full attention, but that’s why you’re here," says Kalman Szegvary, Head of the Film and TV Program at Trebas. 
Da Silva couldn't agree more. "Trebas isn't a safe cocoon for people who are looking to hide from the world for four years in 'school'. It's a fast-paced, practical education program that gives students all the tools they need to succeed, provided they are driven enough to work at it. Like anything, you get out of it what you put in." It is obvious that Michael Da Silva enjoyed his educational experience at Trebas Institute and found it truly rewarding.
Since 1979, Trebas Institute has provided award-winning professionals to major music, film and entertainment companies around the world. For more information about Trebas Institute and its Film and Television Production Program visit
