The course is designed to give you the technical ability and creative confidence to produce original, challenging and bold projects for independent cinema, television and galleries. You complete projects using an intensive production process. We encourage creativity and experimentation between different technologies and conventions. The programme focuses on independence and creating new cinema, emphasising the distinction between creative, conceptual skills and technical industry training.
