Course summary

BA (Hons) Film Production at UCA Farnham has produced high-profile alumni who have contributed to multiple global movie successes including Star Wars, Godzilla, Harry Potter and Mission Impossible and have achieved recognition at BAFTA and Oscar level. You’ll graduate with a strong portfolio of work, with sought-after specialist skills and the practical filmmaking experience employers really want. Our graduates have gone on to work with organisations such as the BBC, Channel 4, Envy, Art4noise, Splice Media and many others. We believe in learning through doing, which is why the course is 75% practical and 25% theoretical. Coursework is screened at national and international competitions and festivals, providing a strong springboard for your future filmmaking career. For students who may not have had the opportunity to undertake moving image work yet, or who need an extended introduction to the course, the first year of this four-year Film Production course offers a thorough grounding in the discipline. You’ll work alongside Photography students in your preparatory first year and explore the relationship between sound and still imagery, the framing of spaces and places, theoretical perspectives on representation, storytelling for the camera, and you’ll develop your own moving image project. From the beginning, you will become part of a close-knit creative team, making films as you would in the film industry. You’ll explore the different aspects of filmmaking and establish yourself in a key specialist role. You'll learn about the business of film, the production process from beginning to end and networking and communication skills to set you up for a career in the industry.This is one of the few courses where you can still combine the latest digital techniques with shooting and editing on 16mm film. We have a tradition of training aspiring filmmakers on 16mm – this has a proven effectiveness for developing visual literacy and fostering the discipline and planning that will help you excel.
