Course summary

We encourage you to find individual approaches through directing work in documentary, drama or experimental film. Work which challenges filmic norms and boundaries is nurtured through exercises and short films. Through this work you will find your own creative identities, and perfect skills which will help you find work in the industry on graduation. Practical experience in directing, camerawork, sound and editing is gained in order to explore how every aspect of film can be a means of creative expression. We strive to work as a film community across years and encourage cross-fertilisation between different technologies and conventions. We believe that you will learn the creativity necessary to enter the film and television industries with a fresh approach to changing technologies and the cinematic ideas that they embrace. You will benefit from workshops and masterclasses from internal and visiting staff, who all work and exhibit internationally in film and television. You will also experience sessions provided by Edinburgh College of Art's (ECA) Scottish Documentary Institute. Our students graduate primarily as directors, having made several films during their time at ECA. We also encourage you to have a secondary practical skill to help gain work in the industry. Integrated with the practical studio work, Design & Screen Cultures courses provide a contextual and theoretical understanding of the holistic nature of contemporary screen studies.
