This unique entry-level course provides people with a first step into the film and screen production industries, and as a part time, tailored course suits people who wish to study at their own pace, study while working, or have more flexibility in choosing course subjects.
Students in this program have made their own short films, and have also obtained placements on industry productions such as The Killer Elite, Santo Sam & Ed's Cup Fever, Surviving Georgia, Hail, Eliminated, Killing Time, Quest for Jackie Chan, Lowdown, The Cup, Small Time Gangster, and Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries.
You can apply to undertake this course as a filmmaker (telling stories), or specialise in one of the many production roles that go into making any film, such as Cinematographer, Production Manager, or Editor.
This one-of-a-kind training program offers the flexibility to design your own individual training program and create a plan which suits your individual needs, experience, career interests and time commitments.
OPTION 1: ENROL IN THE FULL QUALIFICATION (Up front)
Full qualification students in the part-time program enrol in a minimum of ten electives. Get practical skills across a whole range of film-making disciplines, or specialise in specific disciplines such as directing, camera, sound, lighting, writing, editing, art department or production. Create your first film. Work as part of the crew on actual film productions (subject to availability). The choice is yours.
OPTION 2: ENROL IN A PARTIAL QUALIFICATION or ADD ACCREDITATION TO SHORT COURSES (Pay-as-you-go)
You can also choose to gain accreditation in one or more Units as part of a partial qualification. This option suits people who may not want a full qualification, but want to take their training through Open Channel short courses further, by being accredited against national industry standards after their training.
Most beginner or intermediate short courses at Open Channel are associated with one 'Unit of Competency'. These are skills against which you are formally assessed on.
You can add an Accreditation option before or after completing an Open Channel Short Course, if you apply for the part time Certificate III in Media (filmmaking) program on a pay-as-you-go basis.
You can also apply if you have gained non-accredited training or experience elsewhere and wish to begin a process of being formally accredited.
Accreditation allows you to be formally assessed and recognised for your new skills on a Statement of Attainment so your training will be recognised Nationally and can contribute toward a full Qualification course, including Open Channel's Certificate III in Media programs.
The accreditation process involves supervised practice or placement on productions (subject to availability) to apply your new skills, an assessment guide to work through, and individual assessment of your skills by an industry professional.
Successfully achieve 11 Units from eligible Beginner/Intermediate Courses (including 3 compulsory core Units) to be awarded a Certificate III in Media qualification.
Note: In some cases, Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or Credit Transfer may be more appropriate. This is an assessment only process based on prior formal study or work history, and does not include Open Channel assessment guides or industry placements.
Fee subsidies are available for eligible students through Skills Victoria's Victorian Training Guarantee (Up Front payment option only). More information on eligibility for fee subsidies is available here: skills.vic.gov.au/get-training/get-funding
