As an aspiring screenwriter, director or producer, you'll be aware of the importance of hands-on experience that leads to finished projects. Apart from acquiring practical skills, you'll create projects that can form the basis of your portfolio. In this course, you'll develop your existing skills to a near-professional level, collaborating with students and working practitioners alike to create a fully funded short film, documentary, feature film script or similar finished creative product.
Through visiting speakers and industry-based teaching staff, you'll make contacts that will help you navigate your way into this highly competitive industry. Your qualification carries Screen Academy status, the only film qualification in Scotland to offer this, and one of only a few throughout the UK.
On entry into this course, you will already have demonstrated advanced skills in production, direction or screenwriting. By graduation, you will have honed these skills and added to them, exiting the course at a level that approaches professional standard. You'll learn techniques that will allow you to further develop your creative voice, plus the production skills necessary to bring a film project to completion. As you will be working on a project of your own, with a real budget and collaborative team, these skills will be consolidated through practical experience.
