What will I learn?

You will understand how the pre-production, production and post-production stages of digital filmmaking relate to each other creatively and practically. You will develop an understanding of the creative use of sound, camera and post-production techniques for your own film projects.

Initial classes on Visual Storytelling for directors will build your knowledge of using the camera as a storytelling tool, which will then be put into practice in pre-visualising a scene you will write during the first few weeks.

Under the supervision of two tutors you will then direct that scene during the practical shoot weekend in addition to taking on roles in camera and sound for other students shooting their scenes. Important topics such as blocking action and maximising use of location form part of the process during the weekend.

During the final creative stage you will learn how editing further develops a story through pace and point of view.
Developing an understanding of the creative interconnection between the writing, shooting and editing stages underpins the course.
