Course Information

Making the leap from being a fan of film to becoming a force in film happens right here. Our bachelor degree puts you in the spotlight from day one, helping you gain the practical experience and technical knowledge needed to launch yourself in the world of motion picture.

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.  Choose to specialise in either Production where the focus is on directing and producing or Post-Production where you’ll refine your skills in editing, composing and colour grading.

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. By the end of your course you could be collaborating with fellow students across SAE’s global network.  

Ultimately, this is all about a qualification that will expand your career. There is work placement as part of your course, to provide practical experience and help build your network. We’ll also equip you with employability skills, giving you professional strategies in communication and self promotion.

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.
