Our Facilities

At Screen and Film School, we pride ourselves on using the same equipment, software and facilities that industry professionals use every day.

In order to achieve a sustainable and rewarding career in the film industry – and be the absolute best you can be – we know you’ve got to have the best equipment and facilities around you. That’s why each and every one of our film school’s boast industry-standard facilities that rival other education centres across the country.

Screen and Film School has fantastic links with professional companies such as Panavision, Panalux, Arri and many others to support us in the loan and donation of high-end kit.

At the heart of every film school site are fully working sets with lighting rigs and flats. The sets are flexible spaces that can be dressed and adapted to the requirements of each shoot, working alongside your Art Department to create your perfect scene.

We pride ourselves on being one of the very few education providers to teach you on both digital and film cameras. We have a large range of film and digital equipment, including dollies, jibs, tracks and sliders. The film school’s editing software includes Adobe and Avid.

Throughout your course, you’ll learn in our spacious teaching rooms and cutting-edge Mac Labs. Our industry lecturers are also experts in every single element of industry tech (from software to equipment) and will always be on hand to help you upskill, improve and ultimately reach your filmmaking aspirations.

We offer state-of-the-art, purpose-built film studios with sound proofed walls, high ceilings and industry-standard rigging. 

At the heart of the film schools are fully working 18 x 12ft sets with lighting rigs and flats. The sets are flexible spaces that can be dressed and adapted to the requirements of each shoot, working alongside your Art Department to create your perfect scene.

Each studio space is adaptable and multi-functional, meaning you can hold your pre-production meetings, film screenings and writer’s room all from one space.

The technician’s stores are all within the set spaces, so rest assured you have the support of the technician team when you need it.

 

During your time here, you’ll feel right at home working with high-end equipment, whether that’s shooting on an Arri Alexa Mini, lighting your scene with Arri LED kits or setting up your shot with DJI Ronin’s, Screen and Film School has a huge range of industry-standard equipment at your fingertips to use.

Our high-spec range of equipment is also available to use free of charge on your own projects outside of film school through a Flexi Kit, including mics, camera, lighting, grip and lenses.
