Ethnographic and Documentary Film (Practical)

This unique MA programme is based in a university but run by leading film practitioners, ensuring that you not only receive the highest-quality practice-based learning, but you do so in a university research environment where you learn to understand the world we live in.

Entry requirements

Normally an upper 2nd Class Honours degree in a social science, arts, humanities or science discipline from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Academically weaker applications will also be considered provided that they are supported by experience in visual arts or film making. Applicants with prior technical knowledge of film making are asked to send a video portfolio of up to 20' duration (Vimeo link recommended). Applicants without a video portfolio are asked to complete a photo essay. You can submit either by post (a maximum of 20 20cm x 25cm, 8"x10") stills or by link to an external site. All shortlisted applicants will be asked to submit a proposal for a film or video project (to consist of no more than 4 sides of A4), typed and double-spaced. This should include: An outline of what the film is about; the characters and other elements crucial to the narrative and the film structure/narrative. (You are not committed to the proposal for the final project).

Course modules

Practical ethnographic and documentary filming and editing; anthropology and photography; documentary film and the ethnographic eye.

Assessment methods

The programme is delivered through a combination of practical tutorials, seminars and masterclasses and assessed by camera and editing exercises and a written piece.
