With emphasis on collaboration, this Film course from Edinburgh Napier University has been designed to help you embark on a career as a professional fiction filmmaker in one of the following disciplines:
- location sound recording and design
Teaching is through a combination of collaborative shared modules and modules that focus on individual disciplines. The two core practice-based modules complement each other, concentrating on professional practice within the framework of the industry crew structure.
Coursework consists of a large number of practical exercises, workshops and short film projects that allow students to deepen their own technical, creative and professional filmmaking skills. The course also includes a degree of research in your chosen discipline, and a theoretical module on critical film study.
The year's work and study culminates in a major project module in which students continue to work collaboratively, in their chosen disciplines, on one or more short scripted dramas.
