Do you have the creative potential to write, direct and produce for television? Do you have the technical curiosity to be able to adapt your skills to whatever form the medium will require in the future? If so, then this course is for you.

We provide instruction in the technical skills of camera and sound acquisition, lighting, editing, motion graphics and audio post production using HD and solid state equipment. You will learn to write and direct in a variety of genres and styles, both factual and dramatic. You will acquire skills of criticism and research that will give you a solid grounding for progression onto a university honours degree and employment. And you will produce a range of short programmes that will give you a practical understanding of television production and enable you to compile an impressive show-reel, one that will aid you in achieving your first steps into this dynamic and exciting industry.
