Course content

Explore directing for single-camera film and television productions. Develop your screen storytelling skills with our collaborative, practically-focused course that is underpinned by theory.

From identifying and developing story ideas, to analysing and visualising scripts, from working with actors and crew, through to the latest postproduction methods, you'll learn all aspects of directing both fiction and non-fiction projects. You'll collaborate with others to produce professional work and bring your stories to life.

We'll teach you through a mix of workshops, lectures, screenings and masterclasses with leading academics and industry professionals. You’ll use industry-standard facilities in a creative and supportive environment.

You'll develop essential expertise and will be equipped to pursue a career in film and television. Our graduates have gone on to roles in British and European film industries, and in film, TV and commercial production in China, Latin America and the Middle East.
