Film

Universities around the world offer accredited film courses for current or returning students with a personal or professional interest in film. Film courses tend to fall within a defined area of specialization: where some work with primarily technical subjects, others focus more on the creative process. Video Production, Scriptwriting, Post Production, Costume Design, Acting, Audio Description and Documentary Filmmaking are some of the areas of specialization available within film courses.

Film courses are available for students to study on a full time or part time basis. Offered at universities and academic institutions in Europe, Asia, North America and around the world, film courses can range in duration from a week to a year or more. With such a high level of diversity in both the scheduling of the courses and the subject of specification, there are film courses to suit any student's needs. Professionals in many different business sectors may find the lessons learned in film courses, such as creative thinking, communication, teamwork and technical skills, useful for concrete applications in their field.

Best Course Studies in Film 2017. During the first year of 3D Film Production you learn the 3D crafts, and the second year teaches you to make captivating 3D films. When producing a 3D film, you will be using software and 3D characters instead of film cameras and actors. First year - The 3D craft The first year of 3D Film Production is identical to 3D Design and Animation. You can still apply directly for this two-year study program; 3D Film Production. To be good at something you need continuous training, and 3D Design and Animation is no exception. In this course we start building, or modeling, very simple objects in 3D. We then texturize, or paint these objects, before finally lighting and completing them. Thereafter, it is back to modeling again, but this time with greater complexity. Again, we do more texturing and lighting, and we also increase the levels of detail and complexity. The same process is repeated over and over again, but with even more refinement each time. That way, we are able to slowly but surely, progress from the production a simple object like a cup, on to more complicated objects, such as a human figure. The next challenge is to construct these characters’ movements in a manner that is believable. Once more, the aim is to strive towards greater complexity as we focus on advanced 3D figures of human beings. If you are able to sculpt a human, you can basically create anything in 3D.... [-]
