CUA60615 Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media deepens your creative and technical skills, and prepares you for entry into the industry.
One year full time – two semesters of 20 weeks each
You will write and direct a short narrative film (between 10 – 15 minutes) and choose one craft specialisation from:
- Production Design
The year divides roughly into three phases: concept/script development; an intensive overlapping period of pre-production and production; and an extended post-production phase leading up to our prestigious Sydney Film School Festival, when every film screens.
Highlights of the course include intensives in Directing Actors, Writing/Directing, Screen Careers and Concept Development.
In the Advanced Diploma you have the benefit of studying in very small class sizes within your craft area. Our industry mentors are craft experts and are dedicated to quality student outcomes.
Within your craft area you will work across a slate of short films, which will provide the team with a portfolio ready for distribution. Our in-house Distribution Officer manages entry of select films into the international film festival circuit and other emerging forms of distribution.
Advanced Diploma graduates have exceptional employment rates in the industry.
Advanced Diploma graduates may apply for an exclusive exchange scholarships to two international film schools, the École Superieure des Études Cinematographiques (in Paris) and the Instituto di Cinema Madrid.
