Designed for those with little practical experience, expect a hands-on introduction to the world of film and television. Hone your skills in storytelling and screenwriting with the help of your mentor, Chloe and a host of guest filmmakers, screenwriters, and technicians. Try your hand at presenting the news, and filming using a green screen through company visits to some of the cities’ best loved cinemas, production companies and broadcasters. Leave the course with an insight to industry, a pool of contacts and the beginnings of a portfolio under your belt.
