Film and Television production is a full-time project-based course that will introduce you to the fundamentals of the Film and TV industries.
Over the course of the year you will gain understanding of job roles and responsibilities, industry processes and factors affecting content development and distribution in the screen industries. You will analyse professional screen texts and apply your theoretical knowledge to developing your own skills and techniques in editing, lighting, sound recording and camera operation.
For your projects we will guide you through the different stages of production and the various activities involved from idea generation and development, through planning, production and post-production. By the end of the year you will have pitched proposals, researched and scripted short films in different genres. You will have created production schedules, recce locations, carried out risk assessments, created call sheets, held meetings with your colleagues and managed your shoots. Finally, you will present and evaluate your work.
