If you have a desire to create television and media projects that you can take to a world market, and can see how the same formats come up time and again, whether you are in the UK, America, India, China or Brazil, and you would like to make real money from your media projects, our new Masters in TV and Media Production is the course for you. This course takes a â€˜real-lifeâ€™ approach to media content creation, production and distribution. You will learn how ideas are generated, how they are commissioned, what rights you can hold onto and how you can sell your ideas across the world.
The course is aimed at those who want to be working and playing in the context of a global, international media network where what you know, who you know and how the industry works is all important.
A particular specialised feature of the course is the opportunity to develop and pitch individual project ideas to global market players by attending at least one international festival. You will, of course, also be shooting pilots and creating other content for your project ideas.
The course is taught and delivered by a combination of people who work in the industry (e.g, BBC and S4C) and academics who are active content producers.
Learning and teaching methods
The course will be delivered through a blend of methods including seminars, lectures and sessions with guest speakers. Our excellent links with industry mean you will also be able to take advantage of networking opportunities, workshops and collaboration with students from similar programmes as well as practising professionals.
Work Experience and Employment Prospects
As a graduate from this course you will be in an excellent position to develop your career in filmmaking whether that be as a freelancer or working for a production company.
