Program Description

Film Degree BA(Hons)

dBs Film Berlin


Learn the practical and theoretical underpinnings you need to become a well-rounded filmmaker, combined with a good chunk of the experience hours that are so essential to becoming an expert. Key to this are our applied modules on the business of filmmaking, building your brand as a filmmaker, funding, multi-platform distribution, audience building, and harnessing the power of social media for promotion.

Our degree is designed to prepare you for where the industry is going, not where it’s been. It will take you in-depth into each of the key areas and really focus on finding your own creative voice as a visual storyteller. Hands-on and practical, time is also given to really polish each production, with the expectation you will complete your studies with a festival-ready short film.

You’ll take strides towards becoming a master storyteller with a profound understanding of light, composition, movement and mise-en-scene. Deconstruct the story and explore the power of moving images to engage and stir emotion in the viewer, and go in-depth into the art and mechanics of recording and editing sound and immerse yourself in the precision and power of post-production.

Please be aware that if you take this course, you may never be able to simply sit back and enjoy watching a film ever again…
