Course summary

This course will enable you to develop film production skills with digital equipment and the opportunity to use analogue equipment, as well as knowledge of the theories of contemporary cinema. The focus is placed firmly on developing clear and simple storytelling techniques that go beyond arbitrary formal categorisations of drama, documentary or genre.

The course takes its inspiration from forms of cultural production that have challenged conformity, including the work of artists, musicians, painters and performers, and the movements of Italian neo-realism and the cinemas of Africa, Latin America, South East Asia and the Middle East.

Assessment: Film projects, production portfolios, critical analysis essays, and presentations. The film making MA will equip you for lifelong film making and lifelong learning. It prepares you with techniques to sustain a film making practice beyond the university for: employment within the film industry or as an independent film maker; further study. The core skills will enable you to produce films in an independent, pragmatic and accountable manner. This will enhance your employability and begin the process of making you a genuinely independent film maker in command of your own material.
