In this one-year intensive course, you’ll deep-dive into the world of film and television production and come out ready to go straight into the industry.
Delivered out of our South Seas Film School Campus, this programme has a ferocious reputation. We’ve been supplying work-ready graduates to the industry for 27 years, and everyone in the industry knows our name.
For good reason. The course is intense and is packed full of deep and immersive learning-through-action.
You’ll get a taster for all of the industry roles before picking your specialisation in:
Drama directing & scriptwriting
Documentary directing & research
Camera, audio and lighting
Over the course of the year, you will participate in over 30 productions to give you the right communication and collaboration know-how when working with crews on set. You’ll be tutored carefully by industry professionals so you graduate with the competence and confidence to hit the ground running on any set.
Our course content is reviewed every year to remain cutting-edge and relevant. We don’t just want you to know what’s waiting for you on graduation, we want you to have the practical experience you'll need to navigate the realities of the film industry. Every year, we bring in a host of working industry professionals to interact with you. One of the highlights of the year is Dragon's Den, where students pitch film and TV ideas to a panel of hard-core professionals.
Successfully complete this course and you’ll receive the New Zealand Diploma in Screen Production (Level 5).
