  • Course description

    A three-day intensive designed for adults who wish to get a taste of what it takes to work in three of the key areas involved in this dynamic industry. Participants join this program to inspire and inform their own creative agenda, to discover if pursuing further full-time or part-time study of Film & TV is for them, to expand their peer group, to connect with industry professionals, or all of the above. No prior knowledge of Film & TV practices is required, however, many emerging filmmakers with some prior experience find this program suitable for expanding upon their established skills and connections.
