We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Movie Production equip postgraduates with the skills to design, produce and market films.
Taught MA courses are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Film Studies, Media or Design.
You will gain hands-on practical experience in all aspects of film production, including sound recording and design, screenplay, camerawork, lighting and directing. Techniques in pre-production (such as scriptwriting), and post-production (such as editing, transcription and subtitling) are also a large component. You will learn to design, plan, budgeting for and manage projects of different kinds.
Theoretical explorations into the economics of the industry, audience perception, ethics of filmmaking and cultural influences are also a key part of these courses. Specialisms may include feature films, live-action performance recording, documentary film-making and so on.
Careers in this field are extremely varied. You could work as part of a production team, as either the screenwriter, creative producer, or director. If you prefer the technical aspects of this subject, you could opt to be a sound or lighting technician or cinematographer.
