Moving Image Arts - Make Dreams a Reality

Funded by Screen Scotland applications are now open for our Moving Image Arts 2020-21 course.

Aged 16-25 and got a thirst for telling your own story through film? Moving Image Arts AS level qualification gives you a unique opportunity to develop your voice as a filmmaker. You’ll examine the history, techniques and creative impact of film, and use this to inform the development and production of your own work.

We’ll show you how Hitchcock terrified generations, how Tim Burton uses expressionist imagery to create imaginative new worlds and characters, how Film Noir seduced audiences with danger and darkness, and how to turn your ideas into fully realised films, learning cinematography, sound, directing, producing, production design and editing to inform your unique perspective on the world.

Running from week beginning 14th September 2020 until May 2021 via online learning initially, MIA is open to young people in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Following Scottish Govt Covid 19 guidelines, the course will move to in person learning, shooting and editing stages in Edinburgh, but only when the route map easing stages and guidance, and the safety and wellbeing of all staff and learners allow.

The course is free to attend, with financial assistance covering travel costs for those learners, or their parents or carers, in receipt of universal credit, council tax benefit, child tax credit, free school meals, and those supported under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.

Screen Education Edinburgh is dedicated to making film accessible to all, and we welcome applications no matter your background or previous experience, and particularly encourage young people who are female, living with a disability, deaf or hard of hearing, LGBTI, living rurally, those that are/or have been looked after, or from BAME or low income and disadvantaged backgrounds to apply.
