Course summary

Directing for Stage and Screen is for those who have a passion for directing for both the live theatre and for onscreen film and television as well those wishing to develop audio-visual elements for the live performance context.

The programme will prepare you for entry into the moving image and theatre industries through the production of work which could be distributed via film festivals and / or theatrical performance. The programme will also act as a base for doctorial study, an academic career or professional work in theatre and film practice.

The focus of the practice-based training offered in the programme is intended to prepare you for work in the exciting and innovative moving image and theatre sectors through high-end technical instruction, development of professional performance and production methodologies, creative writing, performance praxis and stage craft, and an insight into the industry’s structures and business models.

You will also benefit from the programme’s wide networks in the theatre and moving image industry; you may also gain wider industrial film experience via Schema, UEL’s Student Production Unit. Schema coordinates a variety of film projects with external organisation and is a conduit for internships and work placements.

This programme will equip you for a range of careers in the creative industries or as a platform for progression to PhD study. You will gain the skills, understanding and knowledge to develop an innovative practice as a Film or Theatre Director, Playwright or Screenwriter and an Independent Creative Producer. You will also develop a pathway to PhD study which can incorporate your practice as a focus of study.
