In Depth

What will I study?

This programme is designed around three core themes: Craft and Technique, Creativity, and Critical Analysis. Each year includes all the core themes but with a different emphasis as you progress through the degree.

Year 1 provides you with essential skills in idea generation, camerawork, lighting, editing, sound and storytelling. Throughout the year you will work on a range of production projects. You will also have an introduction to critical debates and film and television history.

In Year 2 the focus is on industry and professional practice, critical analysis and developing research skills. Modules cover advanced production skills, film and television research, theories and analysis. You will choose from a range of practical modules to develop your technical skills, craft and creativity. These cover a diverse range of genres including short film production (in either fiction or factual form), television drama, music video, and children’s television. You will also enhance your understanding of the role of the TV researcher and gain the skills required to effectively manage film and TV projects.

In Year 3 you will undertake two significant practical projects – one in film and the other from a range of options exploring themes such as branded content, audio-visual story-telling and independent TV production. You will study the independent film sector, examine emerging technologies in film and TV production, explore current issues and debates, and complete a dissertation.

How will I study?

Teaching and learning takes place through workshops, lectures, seminars and screenings. You are encouraged to get involved with, and contribute to, a range of activities such as film festivals and work placement opportunities.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is varied, ranging from film and television production projects, pitches and presentations to essays, reports and festival programme design.

There are no formal written examinations as part of the current assessment methods on this programme. Some optional technical modules do incorporate class tests.

Who will be teaching me?

The course is staffed by enthusiastic lecturers, who have many years’ industry experience and are actively involved in production or researching the media, film and television industries. Visiting media professionals add an extra dimension to the programme.
