Program Description

TQUK Level 4 Diploma in Media Production – Filmmaking Management (RQF)

This 6-month, full-time program offers concentrated explorations into the processes of filmmaking as students learn to write, direct, produce, shoot and edit a MOS film, a Sync-Dialogue film, and a music video.

Each project involves the technical, creative and business elements of production. Students develop stories from concept to finished films and refine their skills as visual storytellers. They collaborate with their peers on all projects, participating in multiple technical disciplines to gain both understanding and respect for their value in the creative process. The program emphasizes professional etiquette to facilitate successful and effective overall crew performance.
