Course content

The MA in film making offers postgraduate students the opportunity to explore their own voice and vision, creating sophisticated, professionally produced, expertly crafted films. Award-winning film makers will advance your practical and theoretical understanding of film-making.

Taught by internationally renowned lecturers, this degree is geared towards developing committed film makers. You’ll have access to industry-standard equipment, including high-end cameras, a professional on-campus film studio and edit suites with post-production software.

You’ll be encouraged to experiment creatively, and explore the art of film making through the craft of script-writing and expand your technical expertise. You may explore methods of working with actors, directing styles and the rehearsal process, as well as evolve your engagement with contributors and documentary subjects.

Critical and theoretical perspectives will underpin your experience, and you’ll be encouraged to think of your film-production portfolio in terms of both career advancement and personal exploration. There will also be opportunities for international/European field trips to major film festivals to see works by established and emerging film makers.

As your final major project, you’ll produce a festival-ready short, enabling you to present your film making credentials to industry professionals and the wider market alike.
