Do you want to develop a deep understanding of film as an art form and cultural phenomenon? Do you want to learn the creative and technical skills to produce your own distinctive work to a professional standard? On this programme you will study film and the film industry in a range of social and cultural contexts. You’ll study a combination of practical and academic subjects providing you with key critical and professional knowledge and abilities. We’ll give you a broad introduction to film, developing your analytical skills and knowledge of contemporary developments in the international film industry. You’ll also study all aspects of audio-visual production, developing a range of practical and craft skills to write, shoot and edit your own films. While your first year provides a common, broad-based introduction to film through a set of core modules, as you advance through the levels you will become increasingly independent as a learner. You can explore the aspects of film that interest you and are most relevant to your chosen career path. We’ll also help equip you with the employability skills you’ll need for your future career. Real-world experience is at the heart of your degree and you’ll complete two professional work placements. By the time you graduate, you’ll have had the opportunity to become a confident, engaged, skilled professional with extensive specialist knowledge, the ability to generate and communicate original ideas, and a mastery of all the crafts of filmmaking. Professional placements Our students have undertaken placements working as camera operators, production assistants, editors, photographers, visual effects artists, graphic designers, animators, script writers, and researchers. We have strong links with many key employers in the region and beyond, including the BBC; ITV; independent production companies in film, television and new media; and marketing, public relations and advertising agencies. Career opportunities Our graduates work as film and television producers, programme schedulers, camera operators, sound recordists, freelance filmmakers, or go on to further study to prepare for careers as teachers and university lecturers. Many of our graduates have established their own businesses or are working with media companies including the BBC, Sky and ITV.
