Documentary

Although there is a strong practical element, the course is underpinned by an awareness of the political; legal; moral; and ethical issues that inform contemporary production and exhibition; students on this course explore the role of fact-based production within the context of continuous and often rapid technological evolution; and produce a major, practical documentary project informed by contemporary debates and historical perspective; each students on this course gains the practical skills to do these tasks with a firm grounding in digital video production and the exploration of photography and multimedia through access to industry-standard equipment; all stages of documentary production are covered within the course from the initial proposal to the final edit and students are taught how to research and write the documentary and how to design, film and edit it; they also choose from video, photography and multimedia technologies to realise their own ideas and discover new and unique features of each medium.
