Overview

If you dream of working in film or television, then CIT’s Media Production qualifications could lay the foundations for a brilliant career. Beginning with a Certificate III program that introduces broadcast and electronic media production processes, you will participate in practical activities that provide insight into key roles and processes. Work in a production team and try your hand at camera operation, editing, audio, lighting and script writing. You will engage with the legal, WH&S and financial parameters that operate in the Australian media industry.

At Certificate IV level, your skills and knowledge base will expand to cover film, television, radio and digital media industry contexts. Learn to solve a range of unpredictable problems, as well as analysing and evaluating information from a variety of sources. They may provide leadership and guidance to others with some limited responsibility for the output of others.

The Diploma and Advanced Diploma provide students with the comprehensive knowledge to operate in leadership roles such as direction and the management of productions. You’ll develop skills in media functions such as in film and TV production, sound, research, editing and filmmaking. It offers students the chance to engage more deeply with all stages of production from scripting through to post production in work-like scenarios, and on completion of the Advanced Diploma, you will be able to work efficiently in studio or location settings at all levels of the industry.
