About Film Production - Four Years at University for the Creative Arts

For students who haven’t made films yet, or who need an extended introduction 
to the course, the first year of this four-year Film Production course offers
 a thorough grounding in
 the discipline.

You’ll work alongside Year 0 Photography students and explore the relationship between sound and still imagery, the framing of spaces and places, theoretical perspectives on representation, storytelling for the camera, and you’ll develop your own moving image project.

We believe in learning through doing, which is why this course is 75% practical and 25% theoretical.

From the very beginning, you’ll become part of a close-knit creative team, making films exactly as you would in the film industry.

This is one of the few courses where you can still combine the latest digital techniques with shooting and editing on 16mm film.

ou’ll fully explore different aspects of filmmaking, establishing yourself in a key specialist role such as producing, production design, screenwriting, directing, cinematography, editing, sound or VFX.

You'll learn about the business of film, the production process from beginning to end and networking and communication skills to set you up for a career in the industry.

Coursework is often screened at national and international competitions and festivals, providing a strong springboard for your future filmmaking career.

Our high-profile alumni network has contributed to multiple global movie successes, including Star Wars, Godzilla, James Bond, Harry Potter, Mission Impossible, Lilting, Pride, Paddington and Minions.

We have a long tradition of training aspiring filmmakers on 16mm. This has a proven effectiveness for developing visual literacy and fostering the discipline and planning that will help you excel.

You’ll graduate from this course with a strong portfolio of work, with sought-after specialist skills and the practical filmmaking experience employers really want. The experience of studying film with like-minded people in a specialist arts environment will fuel your creativity and give you a wide network of invaluable contacts for your future career.
