Course Summary

This intensive film-making course will enable students to learn the basics of production – planning, script writing and development, location scouting, and story-boarding.

The filming takes place on location, giving students the opportunity to see numerous beautiful and interesting locations around their campus and the surrounding city, and students will use industry-standard HD video equipment, lighting, microphones and monitor.

Once the film is shot, students use the latest Apple Macs and Final Cut Pro to edit their masterpiece.

Credits and titles complete the production, before the films are remastered for web release and their own portfolios. Many of the student films are even shown at the Graduation ceremony, proving the strength of the material produced during the course.

Course Outcomes

What to expect from the Ivy League Experience

This course has been specifically designed to provide students with an insight into university life in the United States. Students will nominate both a major and a minor subject, and will spend two weeks building their knowledge and skills in their chosen subject areas.

Students will receive 35 hours of tuition across each two-week session, following their major subject for around 75% of the time and their minor choice for the remaining hours.

In their major class, students will learn in a variety of styles, such as traditional classroom learning, interactive seminars and through debates and discussions with fellow students from around the world. Students can expect to have their views challenged and discuss different points of view, and can expect to leave with new insights and a refreshed ability to defend their own viewpoints.

For the minor classes, which will be more skills-based, students can expect to work in small groups and individually in order to solve a problem or bring an idea to life. In doing so, they will work on key attributes for future study and employment, including presentation skills, leadership, teambuilding, creative thinking and evaluating potential solutions.
