AMDT advances Sri Lanka’s Creative industries with another milestone, offering the only Photography & Filmmaking UK degree level qualifications in Sri Lanka.



How many of us fondly recall memories of trying out old film cameras and waiting several days to see the developed pictures? How many of us when fondly looking back at our old albums, imagine ourselves at that moment, what was happening around us, the noise and the atmosphere? Many of us have grown up with the evolution of photography, and sometimes unknowingly we still make sure we have enough photographs on our mobiles to recall the event.

Photography and Filmmaking are rapidly growing passions in Sri Lanka today. Schools now even boast their own Photography clubs which is a testament to the growing interest in the industry as a whole. A Creative Art-form that is far more than what meets the eye, requires practice, a keen eye for seeing what others don’t, and most importantly: Creativity.

Filmmaking in many people’s perception is still confined to movies or television programs. In reality, Filmmakers and Photographers also play leading roles when it comes to Advertising, Commercials, Documentaries, Music Videos, Interviews, Journalism and also Event Coverage. It requires a sound understanding of both to have a successful Creative Career in either Photography or Filmmaking, and hence, AMDT’s UK degree level BTEC qualifications in Photography & Filmmaking go hand-in-hand in terms of learning outcomes as well as the Creative industry experience gained throughout the course duration.

AMDT’s Photography & Filmmaking Degree Level Qualifications equips you with the complete Creative thinking processes required to become successful Creative professionals. Students successfully completing the Photography course learn for areas such as Studio, Fashion, Advertising, Landscape, Wildlife, Event, and Wedding.
