Why study Film and Television at Deakin?

Get ready for your new career

The Bachelor of Creative Arts (Film and Television) allows students to explore and develop their own creativity within collaborative creative teams. Students work across a variety of roles and genres, from documentary and short narrative fiction, to more experimental productions, discovering and developing their skills through exposure to a number of production and post production roles and practices.

The degree comprises study in many areas including scriptwriting, short filmmaking, TV studio production, project management, digital cinematography, editing, sound design and visual language.

Learn from the best

James Cameron has 50, Peter Jackson is using 30 to film The Hobbit and now budding filmmakers at Deakin University will be able to participate in a world first and work with the filmmaker's dream, a RED EPIC camera.
Four of these cameras have been delivered to the University's School of Communication and Creative Arts. Deakin is one of the first universities in the world to have these cameras.
Senior Lecturer, Simon Wilmot, said the cameras were being hailed as the best in the world.
"The creation of the EPIC has been the most discussed and watched development in the world of film technology," he said.
