Summary

Prepare for a career in film and scripted drama on this Creative Skillset accredited course.

With emphasis on collaboration, this course has been designed to help you embark on a career as a professional fiction filmmaker in one of the following disciplines:
•producing
•directing
•cinematography
•editing
•location sound recording and design

Teaching is through a combination of collaborative shared modules and modules that focus on individual disciplines. The two core practice-based modules complement each other, concentrating on professional practice within the framework of the industry crew structure.

Coursework consists of a large number of practical exercises, workshops and short film projects that allow students to deepen their own technical, creative and professional filmmaking skills. The course also includes a degree of research in your chosen discipline, and a theoretical module on critical film study.

The year's work and study culminates in a major project module in which students continue to work collaboratively, in their chosen disciplines, on one or more short scripted dramas.

This course is industry recognised by ScreenSkills, the industry-led skills body for the UK's screen-based industries and carries the ScreenSkills Select endorsement which indicates courses best suited to prepare students for a career in the screen industries.

The course is studied at the Screen Academy Scotland, a ScreenSkills recognised Film Academy.

The deadline for submissions to this course is Thursday 30 April 2020. This course is highly competitive so, if we receive enough applications to fill our places for each specialism, applications may close early.
