Film Production (4-year Extended Study Option)

**Studying Film Production at AUB gives you practical experience of the many aspects of film-making.** The course includes an initial introductory year for students who have the potential but may benefit from extra skills, experience and knowledge. In total this extended study option brings the length of the degree course to four years. It is not a placement degree option. The additional year of study allows you to enhance and build on your existing film production knowledge, truly preparing you to successfully complete the Bachelor’s degree. It is important to bear in mind this is not a Foundation course, rather it is a more specialist year of study which will serve to broaden your understanding of film and really get to grips with the fundamental skills needed to study at Bachelor’s degree level. On successful completion of this preparatory year, you will progress directly onto Year 1 of the BA (Hons) Film Production course without further interview or application. **What you will learn** Throughout the course you will be introduced to the major specialist departments of the film industry and you will be able to specialise in two areas. Communication, passion, creativity, technical ability, vision, research and commitment – all these are essential characteristics of those who work in film. The course is designed to foster these skills and abilities through offering a wide range of film production experiences – from the moment of a film’s inception to its final distribution to cinema and other audiences. The course is 'hands-on' from the outset and students gain a solid grounding in fundamental, traditional practices, such as shooting on film, as well as exploring the complex creativities of digital production. The specialist and focused nature of the course helps students to develop their understanding of the creative and commercial realities of film production. As well as learning practical film-making, students study cinema in its various forms to achieve a working knowledge of a variety of film practices within fiction and documentary film-making. **You can choose to complete your degree in one of the following named awards:** - BA (Hons) Film Production (Cinematography) - BA (Hons) Film Production (Directing) - BA (Hons) Film Production (Documentary) - BA (Hons) Film Production (Editing/Postproduction) - BA (Hons) Film Production (Producing with Script) - BA (Hons) Film Production (Production Design) - BA (Hons) Film Production (Sound) **By the end of the course you will be able to...** - Understand the film production process in its broad cultural context and appreciate the links between research, theory and creative practice. - Demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of your specialisms and an understanding of how they relate to the whole film production process. - Work with a professional approach to manage self-directed learning, provide practical solutions to problems, and develop the necessary communication, organisational and team-working skills required in professional practice. - Enter industry having gained a critical understanding of the elements of film production within a historical and practical context, including the relevant technological context. - Engage in reflective and innovative work demonstrating audio-visual literacy and cultural awareness. **PLEASE NOTE Applicants to BA (Hons) Film Production and BA (Hons) Film Production (4-year Extended Study Option) are automatically assessed for both the 3-year and 4-year routes of the course, irrespective of which route they have applied for. If successful, applicants will receive an offer for the route the course team feels they are best suited to. This is to ensure applicants are offered a course which is appropriate for their current aptitude/skillset and understanding of Film.**
