Our Cinematography course is one of the longest running courses at the School, and one of the most successful, with graduates winning awards the world over (including several Oscar nominations and BSC, ASC, RTS & BAFTA awards). As an experienced Director of Photography you will have knowledge and practical experience of industry customs and practices, a proven ability to ensure that the visual identity, or look of a film or television show contributes to story and character development and importantly understand the necessity of engaging positively with the other key production departments.
