Course Description

Digital Film Production is the study of contemporary forms of filmmaking. You will gain a solid grounding in established techniques as well as exploring emerging digital technologies.

The course will give you the skills and experience to produce innovative shorts, features, commercials and documentaries. The film industry underpins the course and our students learn the importance of all aspects of the production journey from financial backing to building a fan base for a film. Alongside this, we facilitate engagement with film technologies such as Green Screen and give you opportunities to experiment with 3D techniques.

Our film courses are highly regarded in the film industry and students are often working on professional shoots from their first year on the course.

Filmmakers most often work within the technical and creative departments of film production companies. Graduates often also become freelance self-shooters and set up their own studios and production companies.
