This course is aimed at media graduates with an ambition to create and market their own product or services. This course is ideal for you if you wish to start your own media enterprise.

The course comprises five modules: two media business modules, two creative practice modules and a final project that is expected to achieve a professional standard and be ready for commissioning or financial backing. The course provides a comprehensive theoretical and practical understanding of contemporary creative media that will support and motivate students to realise their professional ambitions.

Why choose this course?

MA Creative Media Start Up is very much focused on providing ambitious and enterprise-oriented students with the knowledge and skills to operate as independent production professionals for a range of clients, across a wide range of media outputs and with the agility to adapt to a rapidly evolving media landscape.

The course is designed to produce graduates with advanced skills aligned to a high degree of knowledge of contemporary media markets and business practices that will help them realise their ambition of launching a product, service or their own independent business.

The course modules are designed to progress you from theory through to implementation and provide a substantial bridge between ambition and the actual conditions encountered in the market and in contemporary practices, such as IP development, commissioning and delivery.

The final project expresses this new knowledge by creating a product, service or business plan that is ready to take to market. Our graduates are expected to leave with a project portfolio that is ready for commissioning or financing.

On completing the course you will have acquired a comprehensive and critical understanding of media production work within competitive markets, plus the ability to critically analyse and evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses as independent practitioners.

On the MA Film Production, the learning experience is built around practical production modules, underpinned by theory that explores key developments in the history of cinema.Our aim is to nurture filmmakers who can critically reflect on the form and content of both their own work, and the work of others in the field

Course detail

The course is predominantly practical, with almost 70% of learning geared towards enabling you to produce documentary and experimental films. For those whose interest is academic, there is also the possibility to replace the double project practice module with a dissertation. The course closely tracks contemporary developments in digital cinematography and sound design, actively encouraging students to create transformative cinematic responses which cross the boundaries between documentary, experimental and fictive forms. This includes:

• lyrical

• Montage

• self-reflexive

• guerrilla

• poetic

• drama-documentary

approaches which challenge the existing output of broadcast, festival and on-line exhibition. Students produce several video sequences, plus two short films and one longer film.

The course examines the 'founding' traditions of documentary and experimental fiction associated with the Lumiere Brothers and Melies and explores overlaps and points of contact between them. The learning experience is built around practical production modules, underpinned by theory exploring key developments in the history of cinema. Our aim is to nurture filmmakers who can also critically reflect on the form and content of both their own work and the work of others in the field.

Modules

• Documentary Practice

• Film Theory

• Experimental Film and Video Practice

• Film and Media Cultures

• Project or Dissertation.

Format

The course blends theory and practice and is designed to help you build creative and critical bridges between the two, so each area of study informs and supports your other learning.

Almost 70% of the course is made up of practical workshops. These typically combine an examination of relevant film clips and approaches with discussions relating to their pros and cons. You will receive regular feedback with discussion on work in progress, test viewings with peers and staff, exhibition visits, and production of a final major piece of work. Throughout these modules, you will receive regular technical input and support.

Theory modules combine a range of approaches, including lectures, visits to the London Film Festival, student-led seminars, presentations and class discussions.

Assessment

The course combines elements of formative assessment with summative approaches, so you can draw insights from peers and tutors.

Career and study progression

Our alumni have gone on to showcase work and win awards in film festivals in the UK and internationally and secure broadcasts of their work in a range of territories.

In recent years many alumni from the course found work with production companies, broadcasters or as independent filmmakers, either in the UK, in their own country or elsewhere. We encourage our alumni to be involved with students and staff on the course and have developed a detailed database of student and alumni production expertise, to facilitate networking and the formation of crews for professional and student productions.

We also offer students the opportunity to pursue more in-depth research interests by undertaking a PhD with us.
