Pre Production

Pre production includes Screenplay writing using industry standard formatting of your script, creating shot lists, shooting schedules, inventory lists, release forms and more. These are required in order to plan and organise shoots for the production stage to run smoothly and are an essential phase in film and media production.


The production stage is when you will learn to use camera fundamentals such as focus, exposure, iso, frame composition, lenses, filters and various other camera settings and techniques, lighting setups including three point lighting, using reflectors, diffusion and more. You will also learn how to use audio field recorders, boom microphones, setting recording levels and more in order to capture sound for your screen and media projects.

Post Production

The post production stage consists of learning how to bring all of your footage and assets together in order to create a final product. This includes organisation of media assets, ingestion of footage and video editing in order to export a final product. You will also learn about delivery platforms, screen formats and codecs, naming conventions and more.

I received my Screen and Media Cert III through ITeC in 2018. As a result, I was able to get into a Cinematography position with a 2 million dollar Australian Feature Film, Public Eye (2021). Without ITeC, I wouldn’t have had the skills to get that job.
