Service Description

Start your career in the film industry: The New Zealand screen industry is looking for enthusiastic, skilled people who have a core working knowledge of each of the main areas in the industry. This diploma offers you the hands-on experience to gain that knowledge. From the first day you are operating the equipment, working on each other’s productions and developing a well-rounded professional work ethic, including collaboration and time management skills – both essential for a successful career in screen. During the diploma you will research, write, edit and direct a commercial, a short film and a mini documentary all of which will make up your individual E-portfolio. The one year diploma gives you a solid base and stepping stone to further screen study at EIT in the Bachelor of Creative Practice. Outline: 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.
