Film Production

On this programme, students develop a practical and critical approach to the relationship between film production workflows, digital film technology, and creative practice. This programme seeks to develop students' creative abilities to a high professional standard, preparing them for employment in increasingly dynamic film and media sectors, and to facilitate film projects that foreground the importance of practice-based research, expertise and experimentation. The MA route allows students to refine a critical approach to creativity in areas such as writing, directing, and producing. From October to April, you will attend the following core courses: Cinematography, Production Practice, Film Research Workshop, Film Screenwriting, and Directing Screen Performance. You will choose 30 credits from the following options: Emerging Cinematography Practices, Sound Design, and Editing. From May to September you will undertake a final project. You will use digital camera equipment current in the industry, including RED, Canon C300 and Arri Alexa systems. Teaching takes place in brand new film production facilities in the Stockwell Street building, which includes studios, post-production suites, and a sound studio.
