For students aged 15+
Developing a film showreel and the ability to demonstrate your knowledge of the film making process are vital components for budding filmmakers who wish to pursue this subject at university level, or join the film industry. Working in small groups, students will be led by our experienced tutors through the processes of creating a film from initial script ideas through to the finished film product.
You will explore important pre-production techniques of how to work with a script, storyboarding and developing a narrative story before moving on to shooting a short film. Working together as a film crew you will rotate roles to get varied experience of the entire film process, covering important aspects such as how to shoot a scene and gain practical experience using professional camera and sound equipment. You will also have the opportunity to work with live actors on set and learn the art of directing. During post-production, you will explore and experiment with image and sound editing software in our film digital suites to get your short film ready for screening at the end of the course.
