Course content

UK film-makers are renowned throughout the world for their originality, creativity, and craft. Lincoln's MA Film Production aims to equip students with the skills needed to become the next generation of innovative filmmakers.

Students can learn the art and craft of film through a series of workshops with academics and guest lectures by industry professionals. Previous guest speakers include Deborah Haywood, writer-director of Pin Cushion (2017) and Lucas Roche, who edits for director Shane Meadows. During the programme students are able to make two short documentaries, write and make a short fictional film, and either write a fictional feature screenplay or make a film of their choosing for their final project. Optional modules may include screenwriting, media ecologies, or gender and media.

Working with contemporary industry-standard facilities, state-of-the-art equipment, and specialist software, students at Lincoln can develop skills in scriptwriting, directing, camera, lighting, and sound and post-production effects, all of which are valuable assets for employment in the media, film, and television industries.

Members of the teaching team have included screenwriter Ewen Glass, writer-directors Phil Stevens, Dr Mikey Murray, and Marcella Forster, cinematographer Jack Shelbourn, and editor Chris Hainstock.
