The SAE Bachelor of Film is a hands-on filmmaking course covering tactile hard skill elements of filmmaking in the modern era. New forms of film distribution have changed the film-viewing environment but the foundation skills needed to create films are still core to the future of film production. [+]

Best Bachelors in Arts in Australia 2017. The SAE Bachelor of Film is a hands-on filmmaking course covering tactile hard skill elements of filmmaking in the modern era. New forms of film distribution have changed the film-viewing environment but the foundation skills needed to create films are still core to the future of film production. Soft skills are invaluable attributes for students and are taught through the organising of film productions at the student level. Communication, scheduling, and organisational skills are the core of the Studio Units delivered in Stage II alongside the foundational skills learnt. Creation of high quality short films with high production values lead students through this combined technical and people oriented delivery giving them the springboard to all areas of filmmaking. You will undertake specialised units designed for students to participate in real-world projects under the guidance of expert SAE staff. With this unique teaching style, you will demonstrate your skills and technical knowledge in a collaborative and creative studio-based learning environment. Your Studies: Each degree program is broken up into discrete stages, each designed to promote different skills. Stage I – Foundational Skills Development In Stage I, you will undertake a number of foundational units which will give you the essential technical skills and knowledge not only relevant to your discipline area, but also give you the skills required to collaborate with other creative media students and professionals in later stages of the program. Introduction to cinematography and film production Post-production principles and techniques Storytelling for contemporary media Critical thinking for creative media Screen design Film studies Overview of industry Project management and professional etiquette Critical and creative thinking Contemporary industry overview Stage II – Interdisciplinary Projects, Media and Cultural Studies In Stage II you will be working in simulated project groups where you are working towards large scale deliverables each trimester. Within Stage II we will not only get you to apply your Stage I skills in a deeper context, but help you work within the contemporary creative media workforce. In Stage II we show you how your work contributes to and interacts with broader culture and media practice. This knowledge will enable you to work with a variety of other disciplines and artists and expand your potential on the global stage. You will complete a number of real-world projects with students not only in your own discipline, but in all other SAE disciplines. In Stage II, you will be given the opportunity to work as project specialists within the following areas. The types of projects and project roles you choose to undertake will determine what area of specialisation you fall within. Stage II has two studio modules with projects based on the following areas; 1. Production Both film specialisations have a strong common set of subjects covering the broad base the film industry requires. The Production specialisation focuses on targeting producing and directing skills specifically to this stream, strengthening the ‘big picture’ skill-set of graduates. 2. Post Production The Post Production specialisation adds more specific compositing and software curriculum elements to the common core subjects of this degree. Visual Effects are used in many more films than most people realise and these techniques are studied in this specialisation using industry standard software. Some of these high level softwares were traditionally very expensive and required major hardware installations in order to use. These are now much easier for students to access, increasing creative possibilities within the realm of all future filmmakers. Stage III Stage III is the final part of your studies. Here you will undertake an interdisciplinary project of your choice to be the final and most ambitious portfolio project that you will undertake. You will also finalise your studies by undertaking an elective module and completing a compulsory internship. By the time you graduate, you will have; a professional online presence that you will have begun building at the start of the program, a wide range of interdisciplinary projects present in your portfolio, and a deeper understanding of the creative media fields and real-world experience. Our graduates finish with skill-sets covering not only the foundational areas of traditional filmmaking, but wider concepts of the future of film distribution and viewing standards. Not only do our graduates finish with a working showreel presenting their skills but also their individual creative directions. Students also graduate with an understanding of how to navigate the future of film and media as it adapts and evolves with the changing times. [-]

By providing an insight into the 3D modelling process we show you how standard workflow operations occur in a 3D pipeline, outlining the design process from your first idea to a finished 2D/3D animation. Then, via a range of practical explorations you’ll apply the theory side to the animation process, giving you a solid foundation of methods needed throughout the course. Information, Communication and Professional Media Practice In this module we introduce you to proven concepts and routines of academic research, critique and writing, and nurture these skills to ensure that you apply good study practice and management throughout your studies. We aim to familiarise you with the theories of culture and communication and develop a basic understanding of the creative media industries and your potential role as a professional creative media practitioner. Together, all of these skills will help you develop transferable career skills to aid your job search upon graduation.

There are many options out there, but many schools charge far too much money and don’t offer any real connection to the music industry itself. By choosing one of these schools, you run the risk of taking on career-crushing amounts of student debt for little or no return on your investment. And for someone trying to make it in the music business, that can halt your career before it ever starts. Don’t be that guy or girl. Don’t make the mistake of spending $25,000, $50,000 or $100,000 for a music school education that offers no real path to your future, and don’t make the even more serious mistake of taking on that kind of debt. Let’s be clear: your key to breaking into the music business doesn’t lie in a classroom with a bunch of other students, nor does it lie in some sort of online program that offers you no real feedback. Your path to success lies in the music industry itself—with the people who are actually DOING the work, who can show you the ropes and help you make your own connections. The Recording Connection offers this opportunity with our unique music business training program. Instead of placing you in an overpriced classroom, we place you as a working apprentice (extern) with a real music industry professional who is doing the job you want to be doing. As you follow a structured course curriculum, you’ll gain lots of real-world experience as you work alongside your mentor, and you’ll learn how to make the connections you need in order to succeed (and trust us—success in this business is ALL about connections). Best of all, you’ll gain this experience, knowledge and insider access for a FRACTION of what other music schools charge, so you can graduate with little or no debt and get on with your career. The music industry is a highly competitive field, and it’s the smart ones, the ones willing to think outside the box, who are the ones who rise to the top. For you, that begins with making choices about your education that will actually help your career without crushing you with debt. If you’re serious about beating out the competition to become a successful record executive or band manager, the Recording Connection is here to help! [-]
