This innovative course will engage you in the production of advanced video graphic products while encouraging experimentation and innovation. It is not a ‘conventional’ film course and is not about training for narrow specialist skills nor the production of 35mm feature films. Rather, it will fully prepare you for the ‘brave new world’ of film and video production in the digital age. You will produce films of varying length in a diverse range of media to be exhibited in an equally broad range of settings. There is integration of theory and practice which will enable you to produce cinematic projects that will be technically effective whilst being strong on content.

Developments in digital film/videography technologies – films on the internet, films in club spaces, new film clubs and even films on telecommunications networks – have expanded the possibilities for the distribution and exhibition of cinematic material. The course will offer you the opportunity to engage with these types of cultural activities in a positive and creative way.
