About this course

Full-time | 2021

Our full time course in Creative Film Production aims to equip students with the knowledge, understanding and technical expertise that will allow them to flourish both creatively and professionally whilst developing their own film production skills.

By developing their appreciation and understanding of a variety of genres and practical skills, students will have many opportunities to learn more about diverse practices in moving image and then use this knowledge to develop their own films that will hopefully lay the foundations for careers in the film and television industries.

Modules

- Practical Skills for Moving Image Production
Learners on this module will gain skills in the fundamental techniques, conventions and processes required for the production of moving images projects. The module will cover how information can be effectively and appropriately conveyed in a moving image context through the selection of technology and techniques. Learners will cultivate their awareness of the challenges of designing and delivering ideas for different purposes. Learners will explore how planning and previsualisation lead to a safe and effective production. The delivery considers the intimate relationship of content and style and an awareness of the moving images relationship with other media, especially sound, will be cultivated.
- Reading Film - This module offers an introduction to thinking and writing about film for first year students. Using a selection of representative examples, it introduces students to a range of methods of approaching, interpreting and writing about film, and it requires students to engage with key debates around film texts.
- 90 Second Film Project - This module will offer learners the opportunity to begin to explore their voice as an author of film text and will contextualise theoretic issues such representation within practical output. The module will establish the short film format as a legitimate story telling artefact and method of career progression.
- Contemporary Television Studies - This module examines the important changes in the content and consumption of contemporary television. Students will look at the dramatic landscape changes of fictional and factual TV content over the past decade taking into account sophisticated production values, complex narratives, audience expectations and the emergence of new viewing platforms.
- Documentary Analysis and Production - Students who undertake this module will examine the history, practice and influence of factual filmmaking and then produce a short documentary of their own.
- Group Creative Film Production
This module is a culmination of the creative, practical and collaborative development that learners have undertaken during their degree. It challenges learners to create an ambitious work that demonstrates the skills and sensibilities needed to achieve a creative film production as part of a creative team. Learners will form a crew and undertake a specific role to realise a production following contemporary creative film production practice. Learners will create an original work that embodies their creative passion and forms a key part their show-reel.
- Film Studies Dissertation - This module provides an opportunity for students to develop, at length, a particular disciplinary interest from the area of film studies. This may derive either from study in the first two years of the degree, or from reading and/or practice activities on their own initiative.

Assessment methods

Students are mainly assessed by a combination of coursework assignments and practical tasks. The majority of the assessment is individual; however there are opportunities within some modules for group activities. Each year, students will have the opportunity to create individualised film productions and then work together in the final year to develop a group production for a legitimate external client.
