Content

The BA Filmmaking is a scripted, drama-based, practical filmmaking programme aimed at those who are passionate about storytelling in cinema or television. It is a rich and challenging environment for students who are keen to develop their storytelling skills and have the passion to produce and develop exciting drama content.

Taught within RCS and on location, this conservatoire-based programme explores the main aspects of drama filmmaking, from the development of film craft skills, directing, producing and writing short and long form content for film and television. At RCS you have the opportunity to work with actors, composers, directors, dancers and musicians, as well as your peers from production, including scenic artists, stage managers and technicians.

The programme has critical thinking at its core, with workshops and seminars designed to enhance your ability to appreciate what has gone before as you craft the stories of the future. You will benefit from industry contact, which can include working on professional sets, becoming part of the crew on a professional production, masterclasses and expert tuition from industry practitioners. We’ll help you to develop your ideas and your creativity to the highest level, as well as offering you the opportunity to make films and tell stories.
