Course content

Course offers students the opportunity to develop creative practice in film and television to a professional level. It begins with five taught modules: Script development (practice 1); professional development (1); research and enquiry; professional development (2); script development (2). At the start of the course students submit a proposal outlining their aims for their studies, which will help staff provide focused support and clarify workshop needs. In the final semester students work on a substantial body of work through a major study module. During this time students develop and produce a short digital film to a high professional standard and have the opportunity to fully integrate their creative practice as a director, producer or scripwriter, in a commercial and cultural context.
