Project-based study and lateral entry
Project Based Study
The project-based study (3rd and 4th years) includes the following fields of study: animation, image composition/camera, documentary films, screenplays, TV journalism, interactive media, editing, motion design, production design, scenic films, and promotional films. After the third year film, the diploma film is shown at the end of the 4th year of study. Teaching and supervision take place in the departments named above. Students must write a film analysis in the 3rd year of study.
Lateral entry into the 3rd year of study is possible for applicants with relevant pre-qualifications (e.g. a previous diploma or BA degree). Lateral entrants take part in foundation courses in organisation, technology, and basic cinematography. Departmental teaching starts after this. Interdisciplinary activities include compulsory film history/theory seminars and writing a sequence analysis. Otherwise, teaching and project participation are the same for both lateral entry and fulltime students.
