Subject

Film production

This programme has been developed in reaction to new demands on skills and knowledge, by employers and by an industry that is moving quickly and growing exponentially.
As such, a flexible and dynamic approach to module design concentrates on attitudinal and creative thinking outcomes that demonstrate students’ capacity to combine enterprising and innovative thinking, with established research methodologies.

You will aim to master three key areas of innovation, enterprise and entrepreneurship which underpin your learning. These areas are explored through research and practical projects, initiated through a systematic understanding of film and media, its forms and its application to enterprise.

Also core to the aims of the programme are the practice and refining of communication and collaboration skills through practice, in simulated environments and with real stakeholders. Broader transferable skills will be developed, with the intention of creating employable, adaptive, reflexive problem solvers with the skills and knowledge to create successful film and media enterprises.

You will:
Apply film and media enterprise techniques and methods in the production of film and/or media products, using innovation and entrepreneurship, in simulated and/or live scenarios.
Critically evaluate current research, trends, audiences and innovations in order to make judgements, form arguments and identify areas for further study.
Communicate information, ideas, arguments, problems and solutions through clear written, verbal and audio/ visual outcomes, including the results of research conducted.
Demonstrate decision-making and use of initiative in complex and unpredictable contexts, working independently and in collaboration with others.
Adopt a reflective and critical approach to skills building and personal and professional development in the context of industry careers, employability and own ambitions.
