Program description

Diploma of Film and Television

The world just can’t get enough of the magic of the moving image, and the global uptake of digital technology is creating unprecedented demand for professional content creators. From producers to directors, cinematographers, scriptwriters, motion-graphics designers, editors and more, entertainment production is big business.

Film + TV at JMC is a hands-on production-based course that will give you the knowledge and the creative, technical and managerial skills to create and produce leading content for film, TV, live broadcasts, documentaries, commercials and music videos.

Both Bachelor degree and diploma are structured to help you develop above-the-line practitioners in key crew roles (which will appeal if you’re into serious filmmaking), as well as the range of skills you need to meet the diverse requirements of the industry.

An introduction to the fundamentals of film and TV, the Diploma will let you explore cinematography, editing, lighting, location, sound recording, sound design, screenwriting and production management; crew on an industry production to get the inside perspective; and even produce your own doco.

Investigate the techniques and aesthetics of screen language and storytelling while working on a range of projects including a television studio program, green-screen exercises and documentary production, and gain experience crewing on other productions.
