University of Essex
This course offers an opportunity, not only to explore film and video from analytic and aesthetic perspectives, but to apply this theoretical knowledge to a collective or personal video project. The focus is mainly on alternative, low-budget cinemas but our core seminar also takes in fundamentals of film history and theory, including Hollywood. Modules are taught by our film specialists and by professional film/video makers. Graduates end with a strong sense of independent, documentary and experimental film-making practices.
Our applicants should have a 1st, 2.1 or high 2.2 degree, or equivalent, in a relevant area. If English is not your 1st language, then we require IELTS 7.0, or equivalent, with 6.5 in writing.
Core modules: Film and video production workshop; issues in film theory and history; dissertation; research methods in literary and cultural analysis. Optional modules include: Documentary and the avant-garde (film and video); adaptation; advanced film and industry (production and industry).
Combination of written coursework, end-of-term tests, practical and laboratory work (where appropriate) and end-of-year exams. During the summer, you will work on a dissertation or individual project included in your final grade.
