This is a rigorous, skills-based MA offering training in directing, producing, camera, sound and editing by leading industry practitioners. As well as the practical filmmaking skills acquired on this course, students are exposed to the history and diversity of film as an art form through weekly screenings and lectures. From the moment the programme begins, students are involved in collaborative filmmaking tasks which offer real-world training in a range of roles across the film production process. Throughout the year-long programme, students will develop their creative skills in a supportive environment whilst also having the opportunity to take modules in areas such as television drama, digital film and film administration.
