This qualification is designed for learners who want to learn introductory knowledge and skills involved in Art Department on film and television productions, including the foundations of art and design on film and TV productions, practical fabrication skills, project based-learning on a real production, and preparation for the industry. This 19 week programme provides learners with a tool kit for use during the course and beyond, and with the skills to walk into an entry level job in the sector.

New Zealand’s screen industry is booming as Hollywood looks to New Zealand more and more as a safe haven for film and television production. Amazon’s “Lord of the Rings” prequel, James Cameron’s “Avatar” sequels and Netflix’ reboot of ‘Cowboy Bebop’ are all in desperate of people who know their way around a film and tv set. In Auckland alone the industry predicts it will need 500 graduates over the next three years to fill various roles on set.
