Pulse Short Courses

The Range of Film Courses Offered at Pulse

You might be very interested in film but not sure how to get into the industry or even what roles might interest you – as there are so many diverse jobs involved in making a film. Alternatively, you might have strong creative writing skills or specialised technical know-how that could be applied in the business but you need to hone your skills and get up-to-speed with current trends and tech.  It can be easy for new techniques and methods to pass people by if they are not directly involved in a project or keeping up-to-speed through education.
