Diploma Level 3 - TV and Film Production Extended Certificate
WHAT DOES THE COURSE INVOLVE?
Do you have an interest in making moving image productions? Do you want to work in television or film? Then this is the course for you. The qualification includes four mandatory units that develop a student’s professional understanding of the industry, and introduce film and television production skills. Students learn to write proposals and pitches for a commission, and to develop a film and television treatment outlining their ideas and concepts. They learn to work together in teams, and also individually, to produce film and television projects.
Through optional units in areas such as editing, camera techniques, lighting and script writing, students develop their technical skills to gain an understanding of roles and responsibilities within the industry. During their course, students have to engage with employers from the sector; this could be through work experience or through employers contributing to teaching or assessment.
The work is accomplished using excellent facilities including Adobe digital video and audio editing software. There is a wealth of industry-standard resources available including iMacs and DSLR/GoPro cameras to use, and students will have support from a team of specialised media tutors and technicians. We also have a designated Media area with a studio.
