Why choose this course?

Our screens are changing. Most are now tiny, and they travel with us everywhere we go. But one thing that has always been the same is the power of the films we view on these screens. They can shock us. Make us think. Make us laugh. And the people who produce these moving pictures have never had more creative freedom.

This film course for the digital age provides opportunities to develop your skills in producing, writing, editing, sound, cinematography or directing. You will learn skills used in audio-visual media, gain business and leadership skills, and knowledge of how the entertainment industry works. Regardless of your chosen specialisation, this broad base of skills will make you attractive to employers, or set you up to better take control of your freelance career.

There is an emphasis on creating quality content for a broad range of applications. You will choose from a range of genres, including documentary, drama, television formats and experimental film, and be encouraged to consider formats that include film, television, digital and mobile platforms.
