Six-Month Practical Filmmaking - Berlin

The Met Film - Berlin

6 month course

Six-Month Practical Filmmaking is designed for those wanting a fast-track into a career as a screen creative. It offers an intensive and highly practical immersion in the skills required to work in the moving image industry.

Taught by industry professionals, Six-Month Practical Filmmaking provides students with the confidence to enter employment in the creative industries, instilling a foundation in the core elements of filmmaking. They will learn how to write a screenplay, direct scenes and how to produce their own filmed content. On completion of the course, students will graduate with a showreel of their work.

The six-month programme consists of three terms. During Terms 1 and 2, students will be trained in all key aspects of filmmaking through a combination of intensive practical workshops and a series of creative exercises, escalating in scale as they go through the programme. Following the learning from the foundation programme in Term 1, students learn the advanced skills in screenwriting, cinematography and sound, fiction directing and producing, documentary production, editing and postproduction across Term 2. In Term 3, students will make their own film and perform key roles on set on other students’ films.
