Course summary

Overview On this course, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the interplay between the history and theory of film and television with the practice of production. UEA has a long-established record of excellence in combining the creative arts with critical thinking and this course extends that expertise to the mediums of film and television.  Creative careers in the film and television industry depend on the ability to devise, develop, and execute a coherent vision. This course will therefore develop your ability to tell a story using a range of technologies. Our teaching will focus on the writing, directing, and editing decisions that happen behind the scenes, and it will provide crucial grounding in film and television history and theory. At the same time, we will develop the skills needed for success in the film and television industry. We will provide the training, equipment, and technical support you need while also cultivating the team-work necessary to any large-scale creative venture. You’ll develop your creative vision in workshops, hone your practical production skills in our state-of-the-art facilities and engage with the current academic debates in the discipline while learning key critical and theoretical approaches to the subject in your seminars. About This Course With an emphasis on production, this course develops your creative work through the exploration of critical studies in film and television history and theory. You’ll produce your own film and television content and will gain experience of writing for different media. At the same time, you’ll study the broader contexts of film and television. The work might include directing for the screen, single-camera video and multi-camera television, and screenwriting. Later in your studies, you’ll have the opportunity to specialise in such topics as adaptation, devised filmmaking, directing and working with actors, and you may wish to pursue an independent media practice project. You will also have the option to take Film and Television Studies modules. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change. You should always confirm the details on the provider's website:
