We offer 2 courses at FDI - Art Direction for Film & Television and AutoCAD located at Pinewood Studios that are approved by Creative Skillset.
They are widely recognised within the industry and professional bodies such as the British Film Designers Guild. The Art Direction Course expressly works through a set of exercises and projects that intentionally assembles for the individual student to enable you to take the critical initial steps towards becoming a successful Art Director or Production Designer.
The aim is to give you a solid industry relevant grounding through an intense training and study, to enable you to build you a portfolio that reflects your skill set.
The AutoCAD course provides you with the confidence in how to use the software for work inthe film industry.
Learning the traditions and discipline of hand draughting was a revelation, and placed me firmly on my current career path.
Terry has given me the tools and confidence to pursue art department work - I think taking his course was the best career decision I've made thus far.
No other course had offered the level of expertise on offer in terms of teaching and knowledge of the industry.
In every persons career there are always key mentors and supporters along the way. For me, Terry is one of these people and FDI was the start of a career I love.
