Dynamic and highly practical, our Digital Filmmaking short course provides a comprehensive overview of filmmaking, from direction, through to camera, production and editing.
Led by an award-winning film director, producer and screenwriter, you will be carefully guided through the processes of making a short film – from pre-production, through to post-production. You’ll develop a good understanding of the creative interconnection between the writing, shooting and editing stages and how to work with rapidly emerging digital technologies.
Our Digital Filmmaking course is taught over eight weekly evening sessions in a hybrid format with initial directing and screenwriting sessions taught online followed by camera and editing classes at City’s main campus in central London.
The course also includes each student having access to a camera each for their weekend shoot and individual editing stations at the University.
Who is it for?
This part-time Digital Filmmaking course is ideal if you have a personal or professional interest in filmmaking. You may be looking to build a career in film or wish to gain skills to create your own short videos to high standard.
