Filmmaking is an exciting, collaborative, creative pursuit and has never been more accessible or affordable. To make good films, however, we need to understand the essentials, using all the tools—and personnel—at our disposal. We can look for information online but there’s nothing better than learning from leading, award- winning filmmakers who deliver a lifetime’s knowledge—and insight—into filmmaking and the film industry. Learn all aspects of practical film production in this intensive summer school. Fully structured courses available or you can choose your own sessions.
* Note: We might run the fabulous Low Budget Filmmaking course in July during school holidays. Please email us if you are interested.
The Script to Screen, Cinematography, Documentary and Low Budget Filmmaking courses are open for people of all ages with little or no prior film making experience, practising film makers or actors wanting to change career direction as well as media teachers and students, production companies wishing to train staff, photographers wanting to move to the moving image, and anyone wanting to understand, and learn, all the steps to make great films.
The Filmmaking Summer School has the support of Screen Studies, The University of Melbourne, Australia.
