Course Information

The course is practice based, with aspects of critical media theory integrated into practical modules. We aim to develop curious mind-sets, asking ‘why?’ at every point: as you both research and create narrative and documentary films and reflect critically upon them. The course is focused on the development of passionate, creative, entrepreneurial graduates who are confident collaborators and communicators with industry-led skills to maximise the opportunities for employment in a variety of roles in the creative industries.

The course is delivered though project-based ‘hands-on’ learning, with a great emphasis on location work, live projects and practice activities, all with ongoing feedback. Your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice throughout the course. You will be taught in lectures, seminars, skills workshops and masterclasses as well as in-production meetings, where you will operate within defined, professionally-informed production roles, and in screenings, where you will gain contextual understanding of your own work and the work of others.
