FILMMAKING THEORY & FUNDAMENTALS
The first week of the course is all about the theory and practice of filmmaking. Students will focus on the key elements of the filmmaking process. Subjects covered include script structure and development, directing, production management and visual storytelling.
TECHNICAL TRAINING & PRE-PRODUCTION
During the second week of the course students receive a more intensive series of practical workshops on several aspects of film production, including producing, cinematography, sound, lighting and casting. Students are giving intensive training and tutorials with equipment in the studio to prepare them for their film shoot the following week. The pre-production for the shoot takes place by the end of the week.
SHOOT & POST-PRODUCTION
In the final week students will have their shoot either on location or in our studio, and then enter the post-production phase of their course. Students learn about logging rushes, post- production sound and picture editing. On the final day students are invited to bring their family and friends to the première screening of their film.
The Certificate in Practical Filmmaking course is for students aged 18+. This intensive three-week course requires passion and dedication.
