COURSE OVERVIEW

The MA course in Producing is unique in the opportunities it gives and in its close links with the film and television industry, and provides a fast-track route into a producing career. Students develop their own relationships with successful producers through placements and a mentoring scheme. The BFI is supporting the course with development slate funding for students’ adaptation projects, which they can then take with them and develop further when they graduate from the School. The Producing department aims to train creative, independent producers able to achieve an overall vision for their projects from script development through finance and production to sales and distribution. The course covers fiction production for both film and television and also animation, with students producing at least two short live action films and one animation in their time at the School.

Graduates work as producers of both film and television in the UK and other countries. New graduates typically combine first feature development with paid employment such as Assistant Producer on feature films, working in the development department of independent production companies, or producing short commissions for broadcasters. Deals struck with the BBC and other companies can see proposals from new graduates developed as feature films.

CURRICULUM

Development skills: script analysis and script editing; developing a project from source material; collaboration with writers and directors; pitching; negotiating the deal

Production skills: budgeting and scheduling; managing the production; post production techniques; editing, sound and music Business skills: publicity and marketing; sales, distribution and exhibition; co-production; financing; legal and financial (sponsored by Olswang)

Television: developing a proposal to a broadcaster’s commissioning brief; the television commissioning process; financing a TV programme; multiplatform commissioning

Industry placements for students are encouraged in the summer break of the First Year. Also it is intended that production schedules will allow students in the Second Year to take up work placements at the Cannes Film Festival from which they can learn how the film industry functions on an international level. Each is allocated to either a producer, a distributor or a sales company who they are able to shadow.

In addition, all students are expected to choose an industry mentor who acts as a valuable contact who they can use to help them move into the industry.

The NFTS provides producers with privileged access to events and screenings at the London Film Festival where they have the opportunity not only to see the latest films but also to discuss them and meet other filmmakers as well. Each year a number of outside visits are arranged for producers.

Unlike other schools, all production costs are met by the School. In addition you will be given a cash Production Budget. NFTS students are engaged in more productions as part of the curriculum than any of our competitors.

The Producing course is supported by the McKenna Charitable Trust

CURRICULUM

This unique modular course has been designed to keep pace with changes in technology and Industry practice.

You’ll control many of your own projects from start to finish. You learn by ‘doing’ as well as understanding theory, developing a variety of practical and creative skills from planning, budgeting, storyboarding and pre-visualisation through filming, CGI creation, VFX creation and finally post production and delivery.

Several modules are shared with other departments within the NFTS - such as the popular Take One Painting project - and the Digital FX students participate individually, or as teams, on many of the other NFTS students’ film and TV projects.

You learn what to do and then get a chance to do it for real. Problem solving is paramount.

Year One begins with a series of core modules shared by all three Digital FX disciplines (Compositing, Colour, CG 3D) which the whole cohort of students undertake:
The Common Agenda; The Fundamentals (inc. Motion Graphics);3D CG (Maya); Introduction to Tracking /Match Move; Take One Painting (Maya & Nuke); 2D/3D Compositing (Nuke); Previsualisation; Physical and Practical SFX.

After 9 months of common tuition, students would then choose to specialise further in one of three areas:

Compositing or Colour or CG 3D
To cement students’ choice of specialisation and to prepare them for their second year of MA studies, students would undertake one further common module on ‘Transmedia Storytelling’ and then three units related to their specialisation:

Compositing
Year 1: Motion Capture/Adv. Maya + Nuke; Transmedia storytelling; Green Screen Module (with Prod. Design)
Year 2: Compositing + Prosthetics shoot/post; Compositing + MoCo Workshop/Models/Miniatures

Colour
Year 1: Colour Management on set and in post; Transmedia storytelling; Colour Grading
Year 2: Colour Grading Prosthetics project; Online Editing and deliverables

CG 3D
Year 1: Motion Capture/Adv. Maya + Nuke; Transmedia storytelling; Prosthetics and SFX Make-Up
Year 2: CG + Prosthetics shoot/post; CG + MoCo Workshop/Models/Miniatures

As with all other MA specialisations at the NFTS the Digital FX students would complete a dissertation over the period of the course informing and reflecting on their practice, and work on the 2nd Year Graduate Film and TV Productions.

For the duration of the course, every Digital FX student has a dedicated computer workstation loaded with the latest 2D and 3D software applications including Maya, Nuke, PF Track, After Effects/Photoshop and many other specialist applications.

Working closely with Industry partners, students will also benefit from a wide range of workshops and masterclasses run by Industry professionals. Carefully selected practical work placements may also be available.
Unlike other schools, all production costs are met by the School. In addition you will be given a cash Production Budget. NFTS students are engaged in more productions as part of the curriculum than any of our competitors.
