The Music Composition and Technology for Film and Games degree is a distinctive programme in the UK as you will benefit from working directly with film-makers and digital animators. You will be encouraged to develop your own personal voice as a composer for film, games, TV, commercials and the internet. On this degree you will investigate a wide range of film and games trends, utilising both acoustic instruments and technology. You will have the opportunity to explore your creative interests and ideas through a series of film and animation projects and to have your soundtracks incorporated with original films and digital animations. At the University of Hertfordshire we have some of the best music resources in the UK, including the 12 million pound Music and Film building with leading edge music studios and film and TV facilities, and our 39 million pound Forum - one of the top music performance venues nationally. Our music industry advisory panel is second to none in the UK and includes key figures in the music industry such as Tim Clark (Robbie Williams's manager), Mike Smith (MD Columbia Records) and Korda Marshall - who signed Take That, James Blunt etc. Hertfordshire is the recognised centre of professional film and TV production in the UK, and a leading centre in the world - many Hollywood blockbusters (including all the Harry Potter films) are filmed at the Warner Bothers Studios in Leavesden.
