You develop skills in writing, recording, editing, directing and producing by exploring all aspects of film making and storytelling.In your first year, you study all three pathways: Film & TV Production, Story, Script & Development, Emerging Technology and Digital Performance. Experiencing a range of subjects gives you the opportunity to explore multiple disciplines before deciding what pathway to specialise in subsequently. This approach equips you with a broad range of skills to support a sustainable career. Students have generous studio access and by working in a multi-purpose multi camera film and TV studio, in our Motion and 3D/VR capture studio or the media edit lab, you learn using tools that the professionals use.You will work both independently and in collaboration with students from a wide range of other disciplines. You could be making a film using motion capture of a dancer, running an immersive gig for a band or projection mapping an outdoor event or stage production.
