**More about this course**

This exciting course challenges you to develop and produce effective and engaging screen stories, involving you in practical production work in an innovative studio structure and providing you with the opportunity to work on live projects with clients throughout the course.

Ideal for students who want to learn specialist film production skills supported by a flexible education in broader media practice, the course places a strong emphasis on the media industries.

The teaching is undertaken by practising filmmakers and theorists, receiving support from guest speakers. Students are also encouraged to undertake a work placement as a part of their study.

One of the course's major innovations is that most of the teaching takes place in practical studios, where you will be offered live projects with clients, who in the past have ranged from Benetton to the Bank of England. Last year, some of our students undertook location filming on a feature film which now has cinema distribution.

You will visit film festivals such as the London Film Festival. Student have also attended the Berlin Film Festival where they watched screenings, enjoyed sessions with filmmakers and developed their professional networks. You will also gain valuable experience for your CV through live project work for internal and external clients.

As the course has developed we have placed an increasing emphasis on public exhibition and festival submission. This gives you opportunities to produce increasingly sophisticated work. Throughout your studies you will be making and screening your films for your peers, tutors, industry professionals and the public, creating a rich and vibrant atmosphere in which you will develop as a practitioner.
