Course Introduction

The MA Filmmaking (Producing) will provide students with a thorough training in all aspects of producing ? from the conception of an initial idea through to development, financing, production and release. This Masters, a pathway of the MA Filmmaking, provides excellent training for a successful career as a producer. As part of the programme students will have the opportunity to specialise in either development, where they will work with writers and directors to develop new ideas, or line producing, where students will focus more on how to run a production and a crew, and how to also take a production manager or assistant director role. The programme is housed in a new purpose-built media facility equipped with state-of-the art teaching spaces including film and photography studios equipped with Arri lighting and Green screen, Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Film Editing, Animation, Digital Special Effects, Pro Tools Audio Postproduction and Foley suites. Students work on at least one film per term in their specialist role, culminating in a major production towards the end of the degree. In addition to their specialist area, students attend classes in related disciplines such as Film Directing and Editing and collaborate with students across specialisations on film projects.

This framework is designed to stimulate collaborative practice by providing them with a breadth of filmmaking knowledge combined with a high level of expertise in their chosen filmmaking discipline. In addition to their practical filmmaking skills, we enable them to develop a variety of transferable intellectual, organisational and communication skills to equip students for a broad range of employment opportunities across the arts and media landscape (film, television, online, the creative arts, advertising and related hybrid forms).
