BA (Hons) Filmmaking

Story is at the centre of the BA (Hons) Filmmaking course. It is placed as the driving force of the curriculum, the energy which will directly influence every creative and practical decision made to realise the complexity of a film. Through lectures, practical workshops and production, students are required to develop a detailed and imaginative understanding of the principles and essential practices of mise en scene that enable the communication of a story and its realisation to screen.

Production activity in Drama, Documentary and Experimental Film is designed to reflect the recognised pattern of industry team structures, to promote team productivity and creativity and to instil a culture of individual and collaborative professional behaviour. There is a strong emphasis on nurturing and drawing out individual voice, encouraging each student to bring originality and authenticity to their work. We aim for every student to graduate as an independent thinker as well as a technically skilled and imaginative filmmaker.
