The school produces around 180 films each year on this particular Filmmaking programme offered by The London Film School and last year these screened at over 180 festivals, winning many prizes, including the Cannes Palme d’Or for Best Short Film, the most prestigious festival accolade.
Learning is based around short film production. Each term these film exercises become more technically sophisticated, more considered and more complex in their ambitions. The school specifies the skill base for each exercise, providing the equipment and training students to new levels in each of the various craft skills. Students make all aesthetic decisions, while solving problems similar to those faced by professional units, on a steeply increasing slope of difficulty. The work is constantly assessed and critiqued.
This is the core of The London Film School method. Students learn by applying themselves to aesthetic and practical problems generated by the actual process of filmmaking. This is why the school pushes through so many productions, and why students have more opportunities to work on films than they can realistically take up.
