Our intensive, yearlong course of study is structured to develop technically refined creatives who are able to design and implement audiovisual content for online distribution. The course is for driven individuals who want the technical and conceptual knowledge to tell their stories in stunning visuals. They want to be YouTube famous and not Spielberg famous.

Students will be taught by highly qualified and experienced lecturers and industry specialists within a supportive learning environment. The course curriculum is content driven and student centred, drawing on the participation of both the individual and the group. Coursework will consist of weekly assignments, group critiques, class discussions, practical exercises, tutorials and individual mentoring sessions. Students are encouraged to be experimental with their project tasks, rigorous in their research and exploration, and professional in their conduct.

At the end of their studies, students will leave with Practical and Creative Showreel, a personalised website, a business vision and an Drone license (CAA/0406).
