Film Production Course Manchester

Film Production

If you're looking for an introduction to the world of lights, cameras and action, our brand new 6 month Film Production course will equip you with the fundamental skills you need to get going and start shooting.

Delivered by industry practitioners during two 3-hour evening sessions each week, you'll learn all about cameras and how to operate them, study lighting and composition, explore the principles of video, and master microphone and audio techniques.

During the course you'll have access to the wide range of film and video facilities at SSR including our dedicated Film Studio and Finishing Suite, Blackmagic and Canon cameras, lighting packs, track, dolly and jib systems, location mics, and more.

By the end of the course, you'll have a practical working knowledge of the video industry and will have scripted, filmed and edited three short films. You'll also have the skills to be able to begin creating your own content, or start assisting and working on film shoots and getting your name out there.

The course is designed for beginners, although those with some prior experience looking to refresh the fundamentals are also welcome.
