Applicants engaged in an active learning practice process of experimentation and exploration of aesthetics and techniques of video production, under the instruction of artist Mohamed Abdelkarim.

Another mentor that contributed to the progress and realization of projects was artist Sherif ElAzma, and lectures were given by artist Maha Mamoon.
