This course is written for potential filmmakers with little or no film making experience. It is an ideal introduction to the reality of film making for people who need to balance their interest with work or other commitments.

Through a series of practical workshops, you will gain hands-on experience in writing, filming and editing your own material. Throughout the course you will cover the essential aspects of film making including: story and script development, planning, shot-lists and storyboarding, directing, lighting and camera work and non-linear editing.

Our team of experienced tutors, Celeste Joy-Engel and Oliver Batchelor, will help you acquire a working understanding of the importance of editing and you will gain an understanding of the language and terminology, cutting styles, continuity editing parameters and editing to music.
