Overview

Build your creative post-production skills to make your mark in the film and television industry. Solent’s MA Post Production in Film and Television will see you working with some of the best industry-standard equipment in a fun and creative environment, surrounded by fellow creative people.

You’ll begin by studying the fundamentals of post-production to gain a solid understanding of the core principles and techniques. You’ll then progress into other fields, such as creative editing for drama and for documentary. Here you’ll explore the creative process of editing, from story-telling and character focus for drama, to cutaways and building sequences in documentary. This is complemented by the sound and visual design module where you’ll learn how to add aural and visual dimension to a production.

The research methods and major project modules will give you the opportunity to demonstrate your research skills at master’s level and to work on a personal film or TV project that utilises the skills learnt throughout your studies.

You’ll also have the opportunity to gain professional qualifications alongside your degree studies. You’ll be encouraged sit the Avid Certified User exam – a certificate recognised by post-production companies worldwide. You could also work towards gaining the Pro Tools Certified User certificate, if you wish to pursue a career in sound design or audio mixing.

The course team’s excellent industry links mean you’ll have access to a long-established and inspiring guest speaker programme. Students on our media technology programmes have had the chance to meet and question some of the country’s top industry professionals in film and television. Recent guest speakers include Mick Audsley (BAFTA winning editor: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Everest, Allied, Twelve Monkeys), Eddy Joseph (BAFTA winning sound editor: Casino Royale, United 93, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Walter Murch (Oscar and BAFTA winning sound and film editor Tomorrowland, Apocalypse Now, Jarhead), Nick McPhee (editor: The Durrells, Downton Abbey, Doc Martin), Julian Unthank (screenwriter New Tricks, Sword of Vengeance) and John Lloyd (producer: QI, Blackadder, No Such Thing as the News).
