Masters degrees in Cinematography offer advanced training in developing artistic techniques for moving image sequences, most commonly in film and television.
Taught MA and MFA courses are typical for this subject, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Film Studies.
From feature films to commercials, Cinematography is all about translating simple screenplays into meaningful and stimulating film. You will explore all aspects of pre- and post-production to emphasise mood and emotion through visual storytelling. This could include adding sound effects, introducing CGI (computer generated images), or editing movement.
You will receive practical training in the use of equipment, such as high definition and digital cameras, lens types, film, lighting and laboratory procedures. Collaboration is also a key component in these courses, and you will understand your role through analysis of different crew roles, including working with animators, sound technicians, designers and directors.
Traditional careers include film and TV production, but could also include live performances and art. Particularly, you may become involved with moving image display at museums and art gallery exhibitions.
