Film and Television Production

This course aims to develop students' knowledge of factual UK television and digital media content production, and their creative skills, to an advanced level. Along the way, they will make 7 films of different lengths and write a dissertation on a media subject that excites and interests them. Focusing on 2 key roles, the director and the producer (which in current factual programming are merged into one), students will explore the dynamics of this ever-changing industry, and what it takes to succeed; they will learn to become a visual storyteller, a communicator, a collaborator, a motivator and a problem solver. Students also develop skills in scheduling, production managing, budgeting and marketing programmes. A
