The MA Independent Filmmaking programme will engage you in the production of advanced digital film products.

You will study modules in the production and technology of videography (shooting, editing, post-production), together with specialist modules in film industry practices, music video commissioning and film history and context.

Students will also be taught theoretical and historical/contextual analysis and creative processes such as visualisation and storyboarding. Graduates of this programme will have acquired the tools of critical analysis, ideas-generation and industry understanding to go on to produce successful practical projects.

The inter-relationship between theory, creativity and practice is increasingly valued by employers, and the programme builds on a strong School tradition of integrating theory and practice. This MA in Independent Filmmaking will enable you to produce cinematic projects that will be technically effective whilst being strong on content.

Why Bradford?

Bradford is rapidly growing as a centre for the study of film.

Our partnership with local and national institutions such as the National Media Museum (NMeM), the BBC and City of Film (Bradford was the first UNESCO World City of Film) means that our students can easily engage in film opportunities, events and initiatives. Our students have access to the NMeM collections, exhibitions, industry events, film programmes and festivals and have the opportunity to produce content for a range of organisations through our Digital Working Academy and for submission at film festivals.

We have a programme of world-class speakers brought in to deliver talks and masterclasses and provide bursaries for students to attend relevant film festivals and showcases.

The MA Independent Filmmaking programme is not a ‘conventional’ film programme providing training for either narrow specialist skills or the production of 35mm feature films. Rather, it will fully prepare you for the ‘brave new world’ of film and video production in the digital age.

In the School of Media, Design and Technology we are active in getting students real work experience to coincide with their degree to develop a vast portfolio of work throughout their studies with us. To support this we have established a Digital Media Working Academy in facilitating students to work on film, television, interactive media, games and animation projects. The academy delivers up to 50 projects per year for a variety of companies, enabling students to add work experience to their CV whilst working in a professional environment.

Our partner, the National Media Museum, offers our students added value in its world-class research archives, academic and industrial conferences and symposia, screenings, festivals and exhibitions.

These opportunities make Bradford a truly exceptional place to study and engage with all aspects of independent film production.

Learning activities and assessment

The MA Independent Filmmaking programme uses a variety of learning and teaching strategies, all of which are intended to facilitate to development of independent learning. After some initial theoretical, research and creative modules, practice will be facilitated through a series of core and optional modules that help you develop your own project ideas in partnership with tutors and supervisors. A great deal of autonomy is integrated into this programme whilst maintaining as much of a taught component as is necessary for theoretical and contextual studies.

Learning and teaching strategies include formal lectures, practical workshops, seminar and tutorial work. The types of assessment that these strategies involve (discursive essays, oral presentations, assessment of practical videographic and photographic/still image projects etc.) will allow you to effectively and independently integrate theory, creativity and practice, a key aim of the programme. As is common practice in arts and media education, and due to the creative nature and negotiated aspects of the programme, formal examinations are not used as assessments.

Career support and prospects

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies. Students are encouraged to access this support at an early stage and to use the extensive resources on the Careers website.

Discussing options with specialist advisers helps to clarify plans through exploring options and refining skills of job-hunting. In most of our programmes there is direct input by Career Development Advisers into the curriculum or through specially arranged workshops.

This course will prepare you for a career in film and television production in research, content creation, scriptwriting, camera, sound, lighting, editing, studio and location management, production management, producing and directing. Graduates have also gone on to develop their own independent film companies and teacher training.

Study Support

The Programme Leader is the academic tutor responsible for each students enrolled onto the programme. Students are expected to meet twice per semester with their Programme Leader, in a timetabled slot, but have the opportunity to see them more often via a weekly, drop-in office hour.
