Students in a film studio

Develop professional skills on industry placements

Learn how to make films by making your own. The course will give you a wide range of professional skills in post-production, cinematography, sound design and directing, using a dedicated film studio and a range of editing and grading suites; all of a professional standard. Our ethos is both to push your individual creativity while also training you to work professionally when you leave us.

You’ll be mentored by staff who are active filmmakers themselves and whose work has screened internationally. Several team members are BAFTA-winners and nominees. Our guest lecture series runs throughout the year and includes a diverse range of speakers: Sarah Hauldren, Art Director Evita, Luke Rainey, Colorist – Band of Brothers, Simon Haslett, VFX – Harry Potter VII, Titanic, Nik Powell, Head of NFTS (National Film and Television School) and David Morrissey- Actor, The Walking Dead.

All of your skills will be put into practice on placements at companies like Aardman Animations, Films at 59, Working TItle, BBC Bristol and Wounded Buffalo. To expand an awareness of the short film market, regular trips to festivals have included Encounters Bristol, IDFA Amsterdam, Berlinale Germany, Fantastporto Portugal and the European Short Film Festival in Paris.

Study style

On this course you will learn how to make films by doing it! It is a primarily practical course, where you will be ‘in production’ on at least one film at all times. Regardless of previous experience, you will start by learning each aspect of filmmaking in detail then gradually have the opportunity to specialise more and follow specific pathways. As well as feedback from lecturers, there will be both workshops from and opportunities to work with Mentors from the Film and Television Industry. All of the staff work professionally alongside lecturing and instil that expected practice, whilst also being able to share changes in the Industry as they occur.
