Escac’s Master’s Degree in Film Directing provides students with the knowledge and techniques that enable them to direct fictional audiovisual works.
It is a specialised programme in which students will learn and carry out the functions of a director and the rest of the crew in the preparation, shooting and post-production processes. They will also gain overall knowledge of the duties of the other members of a production team – photography director, art director, editor, sound designer, etc. – through the development of guided practical exercises and short films produced by them, which will be complemented with masterclasses led by professionals from the sector.
