The Met Film School is London's leading provider of practical filmmaking courses, based in Ealing Studios.
The Practical Filmmaking Diploma includes all of the areas covered by students on the One-Year Practical Filmmaking course and further develops your skillset over an additional four-month period. The course also gives you the chance to make short films, make your own documentary as well as collaborate on a project for the small screen. In addition, you will develop an understanding of film history, film movements and genre.
The Practical Filmmaking Diploma provides a greater in-depth understanding of the creative, technical and craft skills required for professional film production. Students will receive more detailed training in key areas of production and multi-camera production, including directing, cinematography, editing, production design, assistant directing, sound recording and script supervising etc.
By the end of our Practical Filmmaking Diploma course you will have been involved in the production of making a number of films individually, and have taken part in numerous practical filmmaking exercises, some of which you could potentially use as showreel pieces. You will be proficient in directing, producing, screenwriting, editing, directing actors for the camera, cinematography and sound design and recording.
In addition to the practical elements of the course, you will also analyse film from a technical, aesthetic and historical perspective. Furthermore, you will understand the creative process of development and pitching for a production by taking part in a module focused on developing your professional practice. This complete and comprehensive view of film will enable you to enter the industry confident in your practical knowledge and theoretical understanding of how it operates.
The School publishes the full programme specifications for its accredited undergraduate and postgraduate programmes on its websites in accordance with the University of West London guidelines.
