Digital Film & Screen Arts (DFSA) is an exhilarating and pioneering course with a track record for nurturing raw talent and supporting our students’ transformation into digital specialists. Our graduates leave us with exceptional technical ability and artistic vision and they go on to ground-breaking achievements in the creative industries.
Whether you want to become a filmmaker, an artist or choose a career with a range of digital skills, as are now widely desired by employers, DFSA gives you the freedom to experiment and develop those creative, critical and transferrable skills that will give you the ability to stand out and even revolutionise digital content as we know it.
DFSA is part of our School of Fine Art and Photography. On the course you’ll be encouraged to develop your contextual and theoretical knowledge of not only moving image, but also media and contemporary art – all while reflecting on your own artistic practice.
Technical workshops will help you build a professional production skill set and, as you move through the course, you’ll broaden your understanding and application of these skills by engaging with a range of interdisciplinary processes and ideas. This will enable you to develop an imaginative and technically accomplished portfolio.
You’ll master the core skills and language of still and moving image practice, such as research, pre-production, lighting, composition, camera operation, sound recording, digital postproduction and compositing. You’ll also look at transmedia and hybrid disciplines in order to enhance your own artistic and professional digital production practices.
This course has changed title for 2019 entry to BA (Hons) Film & Digital Art.
