University of Melbourne
Master of Film and Television
Develop the skills to write, direct and edit your own films in either documentary or narrative specialisations.
The Master of Film and Television offers you intensive, studio-based training in writing, directing and editing of your own productions, with complementary studies in research methods, screen language and technical crewing.
Across two years you will write, direct and edit three films in your chosen specialisation. The film duration and production parameters are extended as you move through the course and are aimed at facilitating the development of your unique, creative voice as a screen director.
The course features studio based intensive classes with a range of industry guest lecturers, as well as regular ‘insiders’ Q&A sessions with visiting filmmakers. In addition to directing your own projects, you will be required to crew on your peer group productions. This production experience is crucial to providing you with the skills and confidence to maintain your directorial vision within the challenging environment of film and television production.
