(2019 - 2021) Digital Filmmaking - Making a Short Film

Digital Format Available


Students will learn both the creative and technical aspects of digital filmmaking – including basic storyboarding, cinematography and editing.

Classroom sessions will include instruction on the theory of filmmaking, as well as in-class exercises. Additionally, we will be screening local and international short films to demonstrate interesting ideas and a variety of visual styles.

Students will learn to research, plan, analyse information and make effective use of content through the pre-production process.

Outside of the classroom, students work closely together in teams to produce their short film. The instructor will be available to guide the students during the production period. Students will pick up skills like problem solving and planning, as they organise, schedule and time manage their shoots.


The objective of the course is to equip students with skills and inspiration for visual storytelling through the digital video medium.

This course aims to introduce students to the filmmaking process – students will learn how to write, direct, shoot and edit their own short films on the digital format.

Students will formulate an idea and learn to guide their film towards their film vision, be it a drama, music video or documentary.
