So you want to work in the Film Industry?

Film Degree BA(Hons)
This BA Hons Film degree immerses you in 3 years of ‘hands on,’ project based film, screen and online video content making. From day one you will start building your own showreel whilst developing an advanced skill set in cinematography, editing, storytelling, directing, post production & sound. All supported by a contemporary and relevant approach to film theory.
Filmmaking Diploma
Gain experience as a filmmaker while creating an impressive showreel of 30 films with our 1-year diploma. Each project will follow a challenging and specifically designed brief to train the very fundamentals of story-telling. These are complemented by three kinds of sessions that will guide you through technical skills, hone your craft and clarify your vision as a filmmaker.
Screen Acting Diploma NEW IN 2017
The goal: get you on camera as much as humanly possible within a year. Forget written tests and theory textbooks - get out there and do it. You’ll star in multiple film productions weekly working in tandem with the diploma filmmakers. When you’re not rehearsing or on the set, you’ll join workshops with professional tutors to train your body and voice.

Our degrees are awarded and validated by the University of St Mark & St John
