Course content

Got a passion for filmmaking? Want to improve your professional showreel and boost your employability? Solent’s MA Film Production programme is ideally suited to students who want to learn advanced filmmaking techniques, working in professional studios and collaborating with expert tutors on a range of projects.

This exciting course focuses on independent filmmaking and current practices in the film industry. Students will experiment with creative ideas from the outset, taking advantage of our industry-standard facilities, training and equipment.

Along the way students will be challenged to develop their own personal style of filmmaking, exploring new ideas and collaborating with other postgraduate students. Up-to-the-minute teaching and instruction help students to build on these skills and work towards their chosen career.

Students studying in the TV, film and media production subject area benefit from a schedule of high calibre guest speakers and visiting fellows. Recent talks have been given by Paul Franklin (Oscar winner for visual effects on Inception) and Brian Tufano (cinematographer on Trainspotting, Quadrophenia and Billy Elliot).
