Met Film School Berlin will be launching the MA Directing programme in October 2015. This programme will aim to provide students with practical work relevant skills, with teaching delivered by industry professional tutors.
The programme will be divided into six 20-credit modules followed by a 60-credit module. Students will complete a portfolio of filmmaking projects, plus a final Master’s Project. Students will attend a series of lectures screenings, seminars, practice-based exercises and workshops, as well as work independently to produce projects for their portfolio, demonstrating craft and creativity to an advanced degree. In addition, students will be required to conduct scholarly research as the basis of critical and reflective written work that links to their chosen field (Directing within screen arts). Students will also receive 1:1 tutorial support throughout the year.
This programme is designed to give students a comprehensive grasp of the creative and technical responsibilities of directors today within a historical, cultural and industrial context.
The programme takes directors through the process of production from script to screen focusing on the core elements of visual language, narrative storytelling and performance. Students will learn and practice a variety of directing styles, techniques and strategies for narrative as well as non-fiction storytelling. The goal of this programme is to develop the craft skills and technical proficiency that ultimately frees the director to take creative risks.
This programme is validated by The University of West London.
To apply for the MA Directing programme, you will need to be 18 years of age or older at the time the course starts. Applicants must have a 2:1 honours degree from a UK university or overseas equivalent. Applicants without this qualification, but possessing relevant work experience, are also invited to apply. Each application is considered on its individual merits.
