What will I learn?

As students at the Academy of Film, Theatre and Television (AFTT), you will undertake an intensive program of teaching and assessment activities based on industry practice, incorporating production skills as well as film projects working with in-house trainers and assessors, and external industry professionals.

The qualification’s 15 units of competency (3 cores, 12 elective) have been grouped into skill clusters, taught holistically over the two semesters in an integrated manner to reflect industry workplace arrangements and practice.

Tier 1: The process of Film making Vision, Craft and Collaboration

Tier 1 provides an overview of the components of the entire filmmaking process, artistic and technical; and the collaborative attitudes and skills the process requires. The focus will be on the basic tools for making a screen production, the language of film making, developing a concept, writing characters and stories, experiencing the production process, working with performers from casting through to post, translating a script from page to screen, and using equipment such as camera, lights, sound recording gear, editing software etc. This process will highlight the importance of techniques for visual storytelling and collaboration with the various team members.

Tier 2: The Implementation of Learnt Craft Application and Skills

Tier 2 offers a deeper knowledge of the specific expressive tools at a filmmaker’s disposal, and how these elements can be used to an individual project. Tier 2 looks in more detail at the film making process, as well as an introduction to the expressive options and choices available to filmmakers. Students will be challenged to look at their individual creative processes and outputs as artists.
