Course Overview

Overview:

The extended diploma is heavily weighted towards practical portfolios, with projects reflecting progression to the industry. In your first year you develop a knowledge of the processes in the industry, however in your second year you enhance your knowledge through contextual development and focused projects aimed to directly tailor your skills to an area of the industry you want to explore more. You will also have work experience opportunities to develop your confidence working with clients, again aiming to give you as many opportunities to develop a strong showreel to take to higher education, apprenticeships or the workplace.

Trips/Visits: 

As part of your second year we go on a range of exciting trips surrounding the film & TV industry. We go to the ASFF film festival which hosts a range of BAFTA accredited films & Masterclasses from industry specialists, in the past learners have met the masterclass hosts and exchanged contacts for the future.

A  2 day trip to London will take place, where we visit Warner Studios, The BFI and a selection of Film and Media museums. This residential allows for an in-depth look at the facilities and locations popularly used in the industry right at the heart of the Capital.
