Overview

Ever wanted to learn more about the filmmaking process? How to write a script? Work with a video camera? Learn how to edit a movie using advanced video editing software? If so, this 20-week course is for you. 

Check out the course video link above to see a past project.

We assume zero prior knowledge on the programme and start with the very basics. All film projects use the Canon XF100 which is a professional-level HD camera that can shoot at variable frame rates and has direct XLR input to assist with improved sound recording.

A range of Sennheiser microphones including radio microphones and two sets of LED three-point lighting equipment provide for an excellent standard of short film productions.

Students who successfully complete the course will obtain the QQI Level 6 module in Film & Digital Video Production (6N5428)
