Develop the skills you need for a career in film and TV on this course designed to provide graduates with the necessary technical skills, creative abilities and professional attitude relevant to those wishing to work in the film and television industries. The course is practice-based, offering you a thorough grounding in both the fundamental technical skills and the all-important artistic appreciation of current digital film and television production: everything from camerawork and sound recording to editing and post-production. The course initially provides students with an understanding of the many roles in the production process while allowing the opportunity to specialise later on. You will be encouraged to develop your personal voice within digital filmmaking through the continual production of short film projects throughout the degree course. To support this, you will be provided with formal tuition and guidance to help develop your writing and directing skills. You will also have the opportunity to undertake placements on professional productions. In the past year, for example, selected students have had work experience on major US TV drama Da Vinci’s Demons, on several features, including the films The Machine and The Convenience, as well as on documentary productions for the BBC. In addition, students also have the opportunity to attend film and television festivals where they can network with directors, producers, and other industry figures. The course has also been carefully developed in parallel with related programmes within the School. All our courses include a series of Creative Practice modules that offer film students the opportunity for productive collaborations with courses in Music Technology, 3D Computer Animation, Games, Digital Arts, and Visual Effects. As an established Avid academic partner with an in-house Avid certified instructor, we are able to offer students the opportunity to gain certification in professional editing.
