Applicants to the BA programme must submit a short film and take part in an interview. This short course will help you prepare for the interview and give practical advice on how to put together your film for submission.
The morning session (10am – 12pm), will be led by Head of Film Ray Tallan, who will discuss the audition process, focusing on what the audition will consist of and how best to prepare for it. This session will also discuss the submission of the written task and what the panel are looking for from this. There will also be a Q+A with Ray Tallan, and this will provide an opportunity for participants to gain further insight into the degree programme and get clarity on any aspects of the whole process that still concerns you.
The afternoon session (1pm – 4pm), will be led by Short Courses Film Coordinator Duncan Sanders with several members of the current BA student cohort or recent graduates of the course. This session will allow participants to get insights from the students about their own pathways that led them to studying on the degree, their experience of interviewing for the course, the things they learned from the process and any potential pitfalls to avoid during the interview. The students successful audition films will also be shared and discussed, with the filmmakers explaining how they approached creating the film and what they learned from the process of making it. There will also be an opportunity to ask the degree students about their experiences on the course, learning about the different modules and units that make up the year and the range of equipment and resources available.
Although this course specifically prepares students for interview at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, it provides skills and experience transferable to other contexts.
