Course summary

Overview Our filmmaking course embraces all areas of film - from documentary and fiction, to artist's film production and critical writing. We believe in learning through doing - so from the very beginning, you'll become part of a close-knit creative team, making films exactly as you would in the industry. Digital technology has changed the way that film is conceived and produced. You'll explore different techniques and establish yourself in a key specialist role, such as production design, visual effects, animation, directing, cinematography, editing or sound. The experience of studying film with like-minded people in an arts environment will help to fuel your creativity and give you a wide network of invaluable contacts for your future career.
