The Higher Diploma in Film & Television Production is designed to give students the opportunity to express themselves through the medium of film. The programme combines an emphasis on the art of filmmaking and the visual representation of story with the development of technical, organisational and production skills. It consists of four main areas : Theory and Analysis, Camera, Lighting and Art Direction. There is an emphasis on Visual Language and Cinematography. Students will be encouraged to examine the variety of styles used in film both historically and currently.

The course uses the latest Television cameras & editing equipment to give students extensive practical skills and technical knowledge required to work in the television and video production industries. Our purpose built facilities include a TV Studio, Control Room and Editing suites with the latest digital technology.
