We will look at the structure of a film crew - how individual job roles fit into the wider crew - and get to grips with industry jargon and etiquette. Industry professionals, working in key roles on award-winning productions, will talk about their jobs and give practical insights and tips into how the industry works.

Each week, you will have the opportunity to test your own knowledge and understanding via multiple choice quizzes, and post your thoughts and ideas for discussion with your fellow students.
