Six-Month Practical Filmmaking is an intensive and practical immersion in the complete craft and technique of filmmaking. Specifically designed to give students the essential tools to launch a professional career as a filmmaker, students will receive a solid foundation in the key elements of filmmaking.
Taught by industry professionals, Six-Month Practical Filmmaking provides students with the confidence to enter the film industry, from writing a screenplay to directing and producing their own film. On completion of the course, students will graduate with a showreel of their work.
The six-month programme consists of three terms. During Terms 1 and 2, students will be trained in all key aspects of filmmaking through a combination of intensive practical workshops and a series of filmmaking exercises, escalating in scale as they go through the programme. Following the learning from the foundation programme in Term 1, students learn the advanced skills in screenwriting; cinematography and sound; fiction directing and producing; documentary production; editing and postproduction during Term 2. In Term 3, students will make their own film and perform key roles on set on other students’ films.
