On this course you’ll be out on location making films from week one. When you aren’t on location you’ll be working as part of a production team to develop original film concepts or working in post-production in the University’s Media Lab. You’ll develop skills in all aspects of filmmaking, working across a range of contemporary film forms and formats.

You’ll join a community of filmmakers from a range of backgrounds including Directors, Scriptwriters, Sound Artists and VJs. Our team includes a National Teaching Fellowship winner, a BAFTA winning Director and a technician who’s performed live visuals at the Mercury Music Awards. The University Chancellor, actor John Hurt CBE, shares his extensive experience with students.

Students have had work selected for BFI Southbank, Munich Film Festival, Glastonbury Festival Screen, SOHO International Film Festival NYC and the Sunrise Film Festival. You’ll have opportunities for placements — for example students worked on Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa. As part of your course you’ll engage with live commissions: we’ve worked with MTV, Channel 4 and the BBC Music Video Festival.

We are looking for storytellers, students who are inspired by the opportunity to create original work.
