Workshops in the areas of sound, camerawork, lighting, producing, acting, editing, screenwriting, production design, directing and assistant directing will develop your skills and potential to operate creatively and within a variety of technical roles. This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant & Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL). **What can you expect?** You'll be thrown into a hands-on learning experience in which you'll explore the entire film production process from development to post production. The rigorous and focused curriculum reflects the strategies, disciplines and realities of contemporary professional digital film production and takes place in a nurturing and encouraging environment. You'll benefit from seminars with agents, development executives and exhibitors, who have previously offered students careers advice and opportunities to build professional networks. In addition, you’ll develop key transferable skills such as entrepreneurship, project management and teamwork to support you in forging a successful career path. Over the three years of your study, you’ll collaborate with other students on six films; during which you'll experience all the roles that are critical to the production process. In order to complete these projects you'll make full use of a large amount of professional digital recording equipment and post-production facilities. You’ll be encouraged to produce work that has a life beyond its academic assessment. You’ll be guided in making submissions to international film festivals and competitions in order to secure work experience at UK film festivals and to start building your professional CV.
