NZ Diploma in Screen Production (Level 5) Eastern Institute of Technology

New Zealand



Course info


The New Zealand screen industry is looking for people who have a core working knowledge of each of the main areas in the industry. This course offers each student the hands on experience to gain that knowledge. From day one the students are operating the camera gear, working on each other’s productions and developing a well rounded professional work ethic essential for a successful career in screen.

During the diploma each student will research, write, edit and direct a commercial, a short film and a mini documentary all which will make up their individual E-portfolio.

The one year diploma gives the students a solid grounding which leads into a second year of screen production offered at EIT as part of the Bachelor of Creative Practice.


This one year (34 week) project-based programme is designed for people wanting to gain craft skills and knowledge required to work in the screen industry. On this course you produce all your own work from conception to completion.

The programme has been designed to give you as much “hands-on” experience with professional camera, sound and editing equipment as practical. We primarily use state-of-the-art digital cameras for recording images then edit those images on non-linear digital editing systems, as used in the professional industry.

Career Opportunities & Outcomes

You will gain a broad introduction, as well as secure a good understanding, of different aspects of the screen industry. This will prepare you for employment or enable you to go on to further Screen study in the Bachelor of Creative Practice. The depth of the course allows you to look at opportunities working in film, television, web and non-broadcast media. We aim to give you the skills to build your career in the area of your choice whether that be camera, sound, editing, directing, script writing, producing or another specialised field.

  • Film and TV work
  • Non-broadcast
