MAKE YOUR ESTABLISHING SHOT IN FILM WITH A DEGREE THAT COVERS EVERYTHING FROM CONCEPT TO CUT!
With eighty percent of internet content projected to be video by 2020, film is an exciting career pathway with many and varied opportunities for career outcomes, now and into the future.
In the Associate Degree, you will complete the first four trimesters of the Bachelor of Film program, which consists of six trimesters. This will prepare you to enter the workforce as a highly skilled para-professional employee. The Associate Degree is also designed an excellent pathway into the Bachelor of Film program.
Starting with the fundamentals and rolling through to the finer, more complex aspects of cinematography, you’ll acquire a very particular set of skills during your time. You’ll experience the different ways you can tell your stories on screen; through scripts, still images, moving images, in the editing room and via different platforms.
At SAE you won’t find yourself in a lecture with 300 people or even in a traditional lecture at all. You’ll be in a studio environment using industry-standard equipment like 4K Red, Sony and Canon cameras, DaVinci Resolve colour grading software, Avid Media Composer, and Adobe Creative Cloud.
Your growth and development will be assessed through the completion of industry-based projects, not theoretical based essays. This will ultimately help you build up a body of work and portfolio to share with potential employers or first client.
In preparation for an industry that commands agility and adaptability, you’ll cut your creative teeth on projects initially in partnership with your course peers. As your skills develop and you work on more dynamic projects, you’ll apply your capabilities on cross-discipline projects.
For those wanting to go the extra, and thousands of miles, you can complete up to two trimesters of your course at selected SAE campuses across the planet. Suddenly, real-world experience just went worldwide.
But most importantly at SAE, you’ll see your ideas come to life as you prepare for a big future in front of you behind the lens.
