Our BSc (Hons) Digital Film Technologies course provides you with a broad range of key practical and creative skills required by employers across a variety of creative and digital industries. Our approach gives aspiring creative technologists the real world experiences and employability skills needed to develop their careers in a range of screen based creative industries. Students on the BSc Digital Film Technologies programme begin their course by being introduced and inducted on a wide range of creative apparatus. Ensuring students have an awareness of a range of hardware, software and the digital workflows all underpin the progress they will make through their specialist and hands on practical modules. Live briefs such as drama productions, multi-camera filming and post production projects allow for applied practice and development of team working skills required to progress through the course. Throughout the course students will engage with numerous drama, performance and voice related projects with fellow students, staff and professional associates. Alongside aspiring filmmakers, writers and animators, students will collaborate across the department to gain an exceptional understanding of production practices and technology application, enhancing an extended range of vital employability skills needed to build a successful career. Opportunities to study the history, theory and cultural relevance of screen based content gives students the chance to investigate a range of interests throughout their degree beyond applied practice. The department runs field trips to international film festivals, professional film shoots and industry conventions on a regular basis, and by working with professional associates and on staff projects students can develop early career profiles on IMDB (Internet Movie Data Base).
