Who's it for?

Film & Photography is for the storyteller obsessed with capturing unique perspectives. It is for those who know the power of subtle details and who are willing to experiment to push the limits of visual communication. Beyond this, it requires a willingness to become a little consumed with the form itself — whether as a film buff, TV addict, or photoblog lurker. Film & Photography walks the line between keeping out of the way and directing people to achieve beautiful results and provides an amazing career for those willing to put in the hard work.

Capture a Fresh Perspective

It’s not an understatement to say the screen has come to rule our lives. We now have access to an exponentially increasing library of content, accessible at any time, on any device — and it’s being consumed en masse. The screen world is a content hungry beast:  budgets are high and expectations for quality content are even higher. This can make the film and television industries seem tough to break into. Surprisingly, amid all this, more space is still emerging for small independent filmmakers.

Develop Your Style

It seems as if every second person these days claims to be a photographer. Photos taken with smartphone cameras are becoming mostly indistinguishable from those taken with their highly priced analog and digital counterparts. It’s nearly impossible to enter the industry as ‘just’ a photographer. Studios are looking for multi-skilled creatives and photography is now an expectation of industry as just one among a range of key skillsets. For this reason you’ll learn to go beyond the camera by expanding on the single frame and using film to support and tell more engaging, dynamic stories.

About this Pathway

The Foundry Approach

Our pathways are made up of two distinct tracks of learning: skills and thinking. The skills track allows you to get super nerdy by immersing you in the specialised skills needed to excel in your discipline and the thinking track focuses on the universal thinking and theory that ties creative industries together.

Film & Photography Skills

Moving quickly on from still photography you’ll learn how to manipulate image and video, in-camera (studio lighting etc.) and in post-production (e.g. colour grading). Utilising Adobe Premier and After Effects you’ll cover the various stages of shooting, editing and special effects so your film can be shared easily across multiple formats. 

Universal Thinking

On the surface, the creative industries seems focused on form (ideas and visuals), but there is a whole other side that lives below making sure everything runs effortlessly. You’ll learn the languages of code, interaction and digital realities. Most importantly you’ll discover how to design and create seamless and intuitive interfaces so the users can stay focused on the experience.

Your Pathway Starts in The Wild

The Wild is the first six months of a two-year creative pathway. Here you will learn the foundations that you need to succeed in creative industries while tasting your career options. For those who know what they want to do, and those who haven’t quite figured it out yet, The Wild is the starting point for every Foundry creative.
