This 2-year programme develops the key skills and practical techniques required to create studio productions and developing film, video and media projects.
At the start of the course you will work with the basic skills of camera management, lighting and sound design; later moving on to script writing, directing and film making. You will have the opportunity to create short narratives and concept pieces, covering all the stages in production, to reach a professional level of training.
This course is divided into 6 terms, each lasting 10 weeks, each incorporating independent learning and self-reflection. The course spans 18-20 months, during which time you may be selected for work experience, which is a great opportunity to hone your practical and communication skills with a real client.
