Course Overview

The university has an international reputation in the film business.

Recent graduates have worked on Oscar-winning productions such as the ‘Hurt Locker’, BBC documentaries and dramas, and for major studios such as Dreamworks. AUB even has a branch of Framestore, Europe’s leading special effects company, on campus.

As one of the few courses in the UK with Skillset Accreditation, Film Production gives you practical experience of the many aspects of filmmaking. You’ll learn the skills needed to take on key creative and production roles in both live action drama productions and documentaries.

Practical film skills for a wide range of productions

Creating any sort of film depends on a team of technically gifted individuals working together. You’ll discover the entire process of film production and the relationship between the various roles and stages including designing, editing, sound, cinematography, production and direction.

After Year 1 you’ll specialise in your chosen area and learn the technical and craft skills you need to contribute to visually exciting and engaging films that entertain and challenge audiences.
