Industry Courses: Six Month Film Production Diploma at SSR, Manchester


If you’re interested in a real introduction to practical film-making – whether you’re an amateur wanting to up your game or have some experience but are looking to gain a foothold in this ever-expanding industry, this could be just right for you.

I’m Course Leader on this six month course running at SSR in Manchester and I’ve designed it to equip you with the fundamental skills you need to get going and start shooting lkie a pro.

Delivered by myself and a range of industry experts during two 3-hour sessions each week, you’ll learn all about cameras and how to operate them, study lighting and composition, explore the principles of video, and master microphone and audio techniques.

During the course you’ll have access to the wide range of film and video facilities at SSR including their dedicated Film Studio and Finishing Suite, Blackmagic and Canon cameras, lighting packs, track, dolly and jib systems, location mics, and more.

By the end of the course, you’ll have a practical working knowledge of the video industry and will have scripted, filmed and edited three short films like the music video shown. You’ll also have the skills to be able to begin creating your own content, or start assisting and working on film shoots and getting your name out there.

The course is designed for beginners, although those with some prior experience looking to refresh the fundamentals are also welcome.

Let me start you on your journey into the world of film and video – who knows where it might take you?
