Course content

  • A unique chance to make a feature film as part of a Master’s degree.
  • Taught by active industry professionals with feature film experience.
  • Learn about traditional and emerging routes to distributing your film.

This Feature Filmmaking course will give you an industry-focused education in the business and practice of modern, low budget feature film production.

Modern filmmaking is collaborative and we’ve tailored the course for aspiring writers, directors and producers. Throughout the process we’ll help you to develop your skills for a career working on feature length documentaries or fiction. We teach you how modern filmmakers make feature length projects, while offering you practical experience of trying to make them yourself.

This is in industry facing course; you’ll build and develop your creative and associated business skills. We believe filmmakers need a clear understanding of business and financial issues to achieve their full creative potential.

Career opportunities

This experience may lead some producers and directors into work on other feature films, TV drama or drama documentaries. Other students may wish to pursue academic work as lecturers or practitioners. Another potential career route open to graduates will be to use their subsequent project as part of a PhD. Other careers can involve working with arts organisations.
