Six-Month Practical Filmmaking

Six-Month Practical Filmmaking is a full-time course 

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 will further develop their skills in screenwriting; sound; fiction directing, 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.
