Make sure you check on the university, college or conservatoire website for any updates about course changes as a result of COVID-19.

Course summary

Every film goes through three stages; pre-production, production and post-production. Post Production is the rewarding creative activity that can make a good film or television programme great. This is the excitement of being an Editor as, ultimately, it’s your version that hits the screen. This is the final, and often most creative stage of the process. The UK is a world leader in post-production and Futureworks is a frontrunner in educating passionate dedicated students in the art of filmmaking, giving students the ability to work together to create award winning films. Working with dedicated professionals on industry-standard equipment and the latest software, every student has the opportunity to realise their creative potential. The main activities within the programme will take place within a classroom/studio/online setting. This will allow you and the staff to develop a mature and informative relationship concerning your study. Not only is this a supportive and welcoming environment but it mimics the professional arena where you will be expected to organise your working patterns based upon set goals. Upon graduation you will achieve not only a recognised degree qualification, but will also be equipped with a strong portfolio and showreel making you ready to hit the ground running on an exciting and fulfilling career.

Assessment method

We want to do everything we can to prepare you for working within the creative industries, and this is reflected in the way we teach and assess you. The course is mostly coursework based, which means your tutors will be able to give you constant, constructive feedback. Presentation techniques will give you valuable experience of how to present your thoughts and ideas successfully and enthusiastically, so you are better at selling your ideas to prospective employers. The written work is an important part of assessment and will improve your communication skills. A combination of lectures, tutorials, peer reviews, discussions and observations will ensure that you’re industry ready. External trips will present you with a wider range of topics and the opportunity to expand your portfolio, whilst guest speakers will help you to understand the art of filmmaking, how it works and how you can make your mark on it.
