Course content

Could you turn a great story into a box office success? This unique practical MA course aims to give students all the tools they need to pre-sell, market, distribute, retail and exhibit films, television shows and games in the digital age.

This course will take participants through the process of taking a piece of content (a game, TV show or a feature film) to its market – examining how the sales, marketing, distribution and retail (or exhibition) side of each industry works from “nose to tail”. The course will also look at the emergence of new and innovative forms of media that merge traditional media with digital markets and the commercial side of each.

By the end of the course students will be expected to have an unrivalled overview of the three key sectors and be able to move between them with ease, making them both very employable executives and marketers who can utilise multi-disciplinary skills to innovate in their chosen sector. Students’ final projects will be a live proposal for, and implementation of, an ambitious sales, marketing and distribution strategy for a film, television show or computer game.

At the heart of the course are two six-week work placements at major entertainment businesses, field trips to film, television and games fesivals, alongside professionally led seminars from executives at some of the world’s most prestigious companies.
