About Bachelor of Creative Arts (Film and Television) at JMC Academy

The world just can’t get enough of the magic of the moving image, and the global uptake of digital technology is creating unprecedented demand for professional content creators. From producers to directors, cinematographers, scriptwriters, motion-graphics designers, editors and more, entertainment production is big business.

Film + TV at JMC is a hands-on production-based course that will give you the knowledge and the creative, technical and managerial skills to create and produce leading content for film, TV, live broadcasts, documentaries, commercials and music videos.

Both Bachelor degree and diploma are structured to help you develop above-the-line practitioners in key crew roles (which will appeal if you’re into serious filmmaking), as well as the range of skills you need to meet the diverse requirements of the industry.

We take film and TV seriously at JMC, with studios full of the best tech in the trade. You’ll have access to highly sophisticated equipment and recording studios, including RED EPIC-W™ HELIUM™ 8K S35 BRAIN cameras, Sony FS 700s, green-screen studios, editing suites, classrooms fitted with 5.1 surround sound and full student loan facilities with lenses, cameras, lights and sound equipment available.

At Bachelor level, work on a short film, a TV commercial, a music video and a large-scale outside broadcast to create your professional showreel and filmography. Develop your creative expression and tech skills, and master screenwriting, directing, cinematography, motion graphics and postproduction, to launch you into the heart of the industry.

Collaborate with JMC Academy’s Music Performance and Management students on a production piece, a music video for example, and study advanced production management, post-production and motion-graphics.
