The MA Independent Filmmaking programme will engage you in the production of advanced digital film products.

You will study modules in the production and technology of videography (shooting, editing, post-production), together with specialist modules in film industry practices, music video commissioning and film history and context.

Students will also be taught theoretical and historical/contextual analysis and creative processes such as visualisation and storyboarding.

Graduates of this programme will have acquired the tools of critical analysis, ideas-generation and industry understanding to go on to produce successful practical projects.

The inter-relationship between theory, creativity and practice is increasingly valued by employers, and the programme builds on a strong School tradition of integrating theory and practice.

This MA in Independent Filmmaking will enable you to produce cinematic projects that will be technically effective whilst being strong on content.
