About Diploma of 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.

An introduction to the fundamentals of film and TV, the Diploma will let you explore cinematography, editing, lighting, location, sound recording, sound design, screenwriting and production management; crew on an industry production to get the inside perspective; and even produce your own doco.

Investigate the techniques and aesthetics of screen language and storytelling while working on a range of projects including a television studio program, green-screen exercises and documentary production, and gain experience crewing on other productions.
