The course will begin with a day in the field exploring some of London's hidden gems and will then take students through all the steps of the filmmaking process, from initial planning, storyboarding and scripting, through to shooting and editing.

Each student will shoot in a team and produce an individual edit. The course will then culminate with a screening of all the completed films.
