  • Is this course for you?

    Ever wanted to make a film, be the next Spielberg, Spike Lee or Jane Campion? This 3-part course explores practical video production skills, from story concepts and script development in part 1, followed by Pre-Production and Video production video skills in part 2, and finally postproduction skills to bring you and your peer’s film to life in part 3. This course is an excellent opportunity to meet likeminded individuals with a passion for film to get behind the camera and work collaboratively to create something original.

  • Required qualifications

    No formal qualification required, just a passion for film, and a desire to get hands on, working with others to create a short film / documentary, and communicate your ideas and passion for all things cinema.

  • What skills will I develop?

    Part 1: Idea and Narrative story development, exploring examples of film, characters, and motivations before developing scripts and pitching to the group.

    Part 2: Pre-Production skills, taking a script, planning, and logistics of filming, alongside camera, lighting and video production techniques to creatively create what’s on the page onto video.

    Part 3: Postproduction skills, learning the basics of video editing software to bring the film together, exploring editing techniques. Do’s and Dont’s and bringing your cut of the film for consideration, alongside titles and credits.

  • Careers

    Creative industries are expanding in the UK and are set to continue to grow faster than the economy at large. The midlands too are looking to develop its output of audio-visual production thanks to the success of programmes like Peaky Blinders, the announcement of the Digbeth Loc Studios complex and local the relocation of BBC programming such as BBC One’s MasterChef:

    “We said we would create jobs and investment, bringing decision-making and productions to the West Midlands as part of our Across the UK plans. Moving one of our biggest programme brands shows we are making that a reality. This is great news for Birmingham and the BBC.” Tim Davie, BBC Director-General.
