Courses are available for students to turn their passion into a career. Although some creative courses have stricter requirements, there are courses available for novices, those seeking a higher degree and working professionals looking to improve their skills.

What is a course in film production? This area of study focuses on the complex art of film making, from story ideas to final editing and everything in between. Students can take introductory courses to gain a basic understanding of the principles behind film production, film styles and film genres. Those planning on a full study program or who want to earn certification can take courses such as film history and analysis, screenwriting, production techniques, business management and digital cinematography.

In addition to learning about film production, students are immersed in teamwork and communication. Fine-tuning these strengths are key components to any successful endeavor. Students also hone their critical-thinking abilities, which can be applied in any career and in everyday life.

Courses in film production can be difficult to get into depending on the school and location. While some offer single courses, many require completing a two-year program, or more. Thus, the cost for these vary by school and length of enrollment.

The complexity of film production provides the opportunity for a diverse set of career paths. Director, producer and screenwriter are well-known roles for many taking these courses. Students interested in the technical aspect of the film-making process may find careers as a cinematographer, camera operator or dolly grip. Since film production requires much more than creativity, the business savvy student might seek the path of a producer, who handles budgeting, finances and other behind-the-scenes details. Other career options include set designers, location managers and art directors.

Students interested in film production can find courses on campuses worldwide and at dedicated film academies. Online courses are available, but typically not for people seeking a full program of study. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
