The programme offers a practical and aesthetic perspective on the film industry and cinema techniques. In contemporary society, the development of culture industries such as film, television and the Internet has led to a surge in the number of people producing visual material for a trans-global market, including related areas in film production administration, archiving and reportage.

The study of film production provides a practical way of thinking about these developments within the framework of academic study and offers ways of understanding this very important development in contemporary culture.

Study places aesthetic, practical skills and knowledge within the wider filmmaking process in order to understand their role in creating meaning in film products through the combination of various skills, techniques and technologies. At the very centre of the course is a clear practical and theoretical film focus, in which the course team encourages and supports the development of students’ personal notions and ideologies into the production of creative films in drama, documentary and experimental forms.

It also examines film criticism, cinema history, the production process and cultural issues surrounding film so that students can develop wider perspectives on the use and function of film production.
