MA Moving Image and Sound overview

The course provides an intensive arena for the discussion, development and production of high quality original audio-visual work.

Professor Suzie Hanna
MA Moving Image and Sound Unit Tutor


One of the most valuable aspects of MA Moving Image and Sound is being part of a community of practitioners and researchers with diverse specialisms. This inspirational environment will enable you to push and challenge your practice as you refine your technical and conceptual skills.

Depending on your specialism you may engage with audio-visual production, sound design, film, motion graphics, traditional and Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) for 2D and 3D animation, character and asset development for games, scripting and narrative, pre- and post-production skills and techniques.

There is an emphasis on critical analysis and through taught sessions you will explore historical and cultural contexts of moving image design. Diverse contemporary references and visiting industry guests will support your professional understanding of a fast changing sector.

You will be expected to demonstrate breadth, depth and originality in your experimentation with concepts, issues and materials relating to moving image. Through intensive study and comprehensive technical workshops you will refine the practical and conceptual skills necessary to create original, thought-provoking work.
