If you aspire to see your name in the rolling credits of a hard-hitting Netflix documentary or BAFTA nominated feature film then this is a great place to start out. Our cutting-edge course embraces all the key areas of film production, from development to post production, and will help you determine whether you’re destined to be a director, editor, screenwriter or one of several other vital roles in the thriving film industry. Our Film Production programme offers a hands-on and aesthetic perspective on the film industry and cinematic techniques. It is anchored around our superbly equipped Multimedia Centre, which has industry-standard facilities, including two HD TV studios with green screens, use of state-of-the-art cameras such as the Black Magic and Canon C100, together with facilities for multitrack audio recording. A robust range of core modules in Years 1 and 2 covers key areas, from editing and sound to lighting and cinematography. In Year 3, you work on a final major project, a showreel and advanced post-production as well as a fascinating choice of optional specialised modules. The course team is made up of active and award-winning filmmakers who encourage and support the development of your personal ideas and stories into films in drama, documentary and experimental formats. We aim to help you develop your own distinctive creative film-making voice during your three years with us. And it’s not all about ‘Lights, camera, action’. The course also examines and engages with film criticism, cinema history, the production process and cultural issues surrounding film so that students can develop wider perspectives on the use and function of film production. Deep pocketed online TV networks and the internet have led to a surge in the number of people producing visual material for a global market. With record amounts being spent on film production in the UK in recent years, graduates have gone on to work in all parts of the film industry, including related areas in production administration, archiving and distribution.
