Overview

BA Creative Producing (Theatre and Short Film) offers students multiple opportunities for creative and practical problem solving while also developing their business and entrepreneurial skills.

Applicants to this course are likely to have a broad range of interests and skills including directing, filmmaking, scriptwriting, performance, production arts management, arts funding, budget and account management, business and marketing.

Some understanding and experience of a performance environment is desirable, but not essential.

The course is based at our Southend Campus, affording the opportunity to not only be working alongside students in training across a wide range of acting disciplines but to also have direct access to the state-of-the-art Clifftown Theatre.

Programme structure

Year 1

In the first year there are modules that build the foundations of knowledge and skills that students will need to progress to more creative modules years 2 and 3. In these units they will learn how to create both objects and scripts for theatre productions; develop the basic skills for producing and develop their understanding of how to turn an artistic endeavour into a feasible, marketable product; they will also work behind the camera to make short videos (that can exist on their own as a narrative or support larger work as marketing material). These largely practical modules are complimented by two further modules that develop requisite research skills and provide a historical and cultural context to theatre making

Year 2

Throughout this year students develop their new skills by focusing on more specific tasks. Students will also engage in writing for film and theatre and develop their understanding of location management, fundraising, preparing grant proposals, and touring a production, editing for a trailer, and filming live events.

Career opportunities

While there has never been a shortage of creative talent to originate work across the digital, live event, music, publishing screen and stage sectors, all of this talent needs to be managed and employment prospects for well-trained graduates in this field are excellent.
