Effective filmmaking and audio skills are required across a range of industries. Though this discipline is mostly associated with cinema, skills in this field can also be utilised in journalism, documentary production and even live arts.
Multidisciplinary in nature, these courses will cover techniques drawn from a range of methods and practices, including dramaturgy, music technology and visual arts. For example, through undertaking creative sound production, you could work with various bands or even orchestras to curate sound pieces for films or television programmes.
As well as roles in TV and film, you may wish to explore careers in radio, website content creation, exhibition design for museums and galleries, or stage management for theatre companies and festivals.
