The MA Cinematography course builds essential and practical skills to prepare you for a role as Cinematographer/Director of Photography (DOP).
Cinematography is about understanding how to use camera and lighting techniques to tell a story, whether it is screened at the cinema, on TV, or through an iPhone. As technology continues to evolve at an ever increasing rate, the aim of this programme is about more than how to operate a particular piece of equipment – it’s about a deeper understanding of storytelling and the moving image to communicate something meaningful and entertaining to an audience.
To apply for the MA course you will need to be 18 years of age or older at the time the course starts. Applicants must have a minimum 2:1 honours degree from a UK university or overseas equivalent. Applicants without this qualification, but possessing relevant work experience, are also invited to apply. Each application is considered on its individual merits.
"Film School gave me an environment where I could work on my ideas. I know more about the kinds of films I want to make now, and I know a lot more about the industry than I did."
"The MA was a truly formative and professional program that elicited a range of skills that I had previously experimented with, but did not fully realize. With the hands-on and practical nature of the course and the challenge of producing real content through productions and exercises, I was able to express completely my filmic palette and get regular feedback on my ideas and the quality of my work. Through this experience, I created a body of work which I was proud of and ultimately could showcase my range and ambition. It was a program that pushed me on all levels."
2020 Voices That Matter Scholarship – Women in the Screen Industries is a scholarship designed to support the next generation of female filmmakers, recognising the importance of accessibility and equality within the screen industry.
A recent skills audit of the UK Film Industry by the Work Foundation for the BFI found that the industry is severely lacking in female talent.
The scholarship only applies to MetFilm School degree courses, the BA and MA programmes in London and Berlin. There are two scholarships available, one in London and one in Berlin.
Viacom is one of the world’s largest multinational media companies who also own Paramount Pictures.
The successful students, one from each campus will have unique access to senior executives from the industry, including quarterly mentoring sessions at Viacom’s landmark London HQ offices in Camden, as well as work experience and placement opportunities with the company.
Full tuition fees of the accredited course is covered for the duration of the course.
Recognising the importance of accessibility and equality within the screen industries, MetFilm School is pleased to announce the 2020 Voices That Matter Scholarship – Women in the Screen Industries, supported by MTV Staying Alive Foundation, (MTV SAF), an independent organisation housed by Viacom.
