Online course returns to explore screen industry career options

Lights, camera, computer – action!, a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) designed by academics from the Screen Industries Growth Network (SIGN) and industry experts, returns on Monday, 12 September, 2022.

This three-week course introduces participants to the people and skills involved in creating film, TV and games, and explores the impact of technology on digital storytelling and the new opportunities it presents. Since it first launched in January 2022, over 500 people have signed up to learn about the screen industries through videos, articles and quizzes.

Learners can work through the course in their own time or join a guided version starting on 12 September where educators will be on hand through every step to answer questions and provide additional support.

Lights, camera, computer – action! has been developed in partnership with the University of York and FutureLearn. Find out more and sign up.
