You should have some experience of film, video or television production. This may have been gained through an undergraduate degree (2:1 or equivalent), via professional practice or through a formal filmmaking society. Experience in visual effects or animation is desirable but not required.
Months of entry
Study, explore and practise contemporary film and television postproduction with a focus on creative aspects of visual effects. Learn a variety of postproduction techniques, including compositing, colour grading and conforming visual effects projects.
Our course emphasises a high level of craft and creativity, combined with critical thought and collaboration. You'll gain scientific and technical training with hands-on experience of visual effects systems, programme creation and artistic decision-making.
We'll teach you through a mix of workshops, lectures, screenings and masterclasses with leading academics and industry professionals. You'll use industry-standard facilities in a vibrant and supportive environment. You'll realise your own creative and technical projects and develop essential professional skills to pursue a career in industry.
On this MA you can focus on production-orientated work. Alternatively you can focus on formal research into the technologies behind postproduction systems and apply for the MSc Film and Television Production with Visual Effects.
Many of our graduates work in the industry, from film to television companies, and some of our graduates have gone on to research in industry or academia.
