Film and Television

The arrival of the digital age has revolutionised the traditional broadcast landscape of production, distribution and exhibition. This course, built on the success of what was formerly MA Television Production, reflects and interrogates the highly fluid nature of the contemporary screen media environment. Rather than being fearful of what is to come, or nostalgic for the past, the course gives you the confidence to analyse the diversity and crossover of today's film and television, and acquire the creative skills to produce intelligent and inspirational visual work. Our philosophy is 1 of flexibility, so you will shape the curriculum around your own interests, whether in theory, practice, or a combination of the 2. Drawn from the fundamentals of history, theory and criticism, our theoretical strand develops tomorrow's cineastes, cultural commentators, journalists and academics. This also underpins our approach to practice. You will not only learn how to direct, shoot, edit, write and produce well, but why, philosophically and creatively, your ideas are worth being made.
