Four-Week Filmmaking offers a comprehensive range of screen creative skills, allowing students to explore the processes of visual storytelling whilst working with actors, interpreting scripts, devising narrative storylines and developing a deeper understanding of the technical aspects of film production. Students will be introduced to the professional skills needed to work within directing, cinematography, sound design and editing, equipping themselves with an independent approach to the technical aspects of film production.
Through a series of practical, technical and directing exercises students will become confident practitioners in all areas of production and develop an insight into professional working practices. Industry professional tutors will acts as mentors throughout and students will also be given vital support and guidance on how to establish themselves in this vibrant and competitive industry.
Students from our short courses have gone on to carve out their own success.
