On site course

If you’re a young person interested in a production career, our education partner boomsatsuma delivers a Film & Television Production Diploma based in a classroom on site at the Studios. We particularly encourage applications from young people local to us in South Bristol.

boomsatsuma’s Film & Television Production Diploma offers hands on education and training across filmmaking, TV production, lighting, photography, events management, animation graphic design, production design and sound design. Students are taught curriculum-facing projects in classrooms on site and are able to access extra opportunities arising from being based in an active TV and film facility, for example work placements on productions, behind the scenes set tours, use of facilities and runner positions.

Paired with a broad experience of varied real-world projects, teamwork and industry insight, the course equips young people with a range of skills and experience to enable them to choose a career progression route that suits them, whether that be university, an apprenticeship, further training, employment or freelancing. Open to 16-19 year olds, this OCR Cambridge Technicals Extended Diploma is a nationally recognised qualification equivalent to 3 A Levels and worth up to 168 UCAS tariff points. 20 spaces are available on this course each year.  For full course details and how to apply, click here.

From September 2021, boomsatsuma will also offer a BA (Hons) Filmmaking (Pathways): Production and Post-Production course, delivered at Boom Studios in the Tobacco Factory. We are pleased to be an industry partner for this course alongside Films@59 and BBC Bristol. The course offers the chance to learn the skills and tools required by industry to make yourself employable on graduation, and develop your own creative practice through a range of practical modules going right across filmmaking and television practice.
