MA Post-Production

Course Description

The programme is led by experienced filmmaking practitioners, including directors, writers, producers, editors, and post-production picture and sound specialists. Each student on the programme will complete a portfolio of filmmaking projects, plus a final Masters research or production project.

Post-production is an integral part of the filmmaking and storytelling process. This award focuses on the core skills and technology needed for today’s ever-changing industry, including off-line and on-line editing, sound design, grading and visual effects. Students will study and practice the power of editing as a creative and technical craft, and acquire marketable skills across a variety of visual media.

Students will gain an advanced understanding of the various editing platforms, including both Avid® and Adobe Premier®, as well as the technical requirements for professional quality workflow systems and output. Through a variety of practical projects, students will work in a simulated professional environment and have the opportunity to work with directors and producers by providing the editing, sound design, visual effects and grading for student collaborations. All of this will be underpinned by knowledge of the leading software and hardware tools, and the ability to work independently and within a creative team. Students on the course will have the opportunity to work at a professional industry level, and network with outside industry professionals.

By the end of the programme students will be able to:

- Develop an advanced level understanding of post-production workflows, processes and disciplines.
- Develop advanced post-production skills and technical knowledge appropriate for professional contemporary media industries
- Demonstrate an extensive range of post-production techniques across multiple creative platforms, including a high level of creative and technical ability

- Facilitate the development of craft, creative, conceptual and professional skills for continuous professional development
- Demonstrate a pro-active, self-directed and high-level approach to learning and practice

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."

(Student Profile)

MA Filmmaking Graduate

"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."
