Course content

This course develops conceptual thinkers and professionals who can deliver ideas across moving image industries.

Futures The need for both film and video content means that there is a growing need not just for producers but also digital advertising professionals who have a deep understanding of the whole workflow around moving image.

Our Moving Image course has been designed for students who are looking for an innovative, creative and critical opportunity to develop their work. You will engage with video, digital editing, sound and animation to build a strong conceptual and technical basis for your development. We provide opportunities to work in more traditional areas of moving image such as short narrative film, promotions and branding, animation and motion graphics whilst also developing skills in areas such as 3D projection, video mapping and CGI.

The course forms an intensive arena for the discussion, development and production of high quality original audio-visual work. You will also be encouraged to engage with the wider context of moving image practice, for instance through submitting work to festivals and competitions. There may be opportunities to work on ‘live’ industry briefs or with start-ups from the incubation area. You will be invited to attend guest lectures from industry professionals and participate in industry-focused projects, collaborations and workplace visits.
