About the course This course is taught at a partner college, Screen and Film School, at their premises in central Brighton. Upon successful completion you will receive a degree from BIMM Institute. This is a one-year top-up degree aimed at students who have studied practical media or arts subjects such as film making, art direction or creative media at either a foundation degree, HND or equivalent level. A three-year option is available for students holding A level or equivalent qualifications. This cutting-edge industry-led course has been developed from in-depth and ongoing industry feedback and input from all areas of production that reflects the current demand for industry ready, technically skilled students, who have the creative, logistical and production skills that are currently needed in industry. The growth in high end production for content providers such as Netflix, Amazon, Disney Plus and Apple TV in the UK supports the need for highly skilled graduates for industry. This practical course provides students with an industry-relevant offering that includes a critical understanding of applied film theory, with current industry insight and practice in film production, and the creative and technical skills to function effectively in film, television and associated sectors such as music videos, advertising and short form content. To ensure this professionalism is embedded in the curriculum the film school acts as a production house, the tutor as executive producer, to support the collaborative film production that is realised in the student’s graduation films. As film production is continuously evolving the Screen and Film School is constantly adapting to support the industry’s demands. The course’s intensive curriculum will challenge students to develop their skills and prepare them for the production world of today.
