Masters in Film, Photography & Media

Film represents the final product of the cinematographic art and industry. This form of art borrows elements from disciplines including acting, human resource management, creative writing, visual arts, animation, covering the different stages of creating a movie from casting, directing, producing, editing and delivering the final product. Some courses in film also study technical aspects of film and photo creation using specialised equipment.
Photography is the art, science or technique of attaching an image to a sensitive surface through the action of light or other electromagnetic radiation, using a converging lens. Photos used to be produced in a darkroom and were reproduced by copying the negative on which the image was printed. Modern equipment stores photographs in digital formats that can be transferred on various devices and can be edited using specialised software.
Topics covered by programmes in film, photography and media include: photojournalism, commercial photography, film interpretation, documentary films, Hollywood cinema through history, and more.
Students of film, photography and media programmes understand the evolution of media arts and the factors that influenced them, as well as their effect on society. They will develop a good photographic eye, secrets of the trade and knowledge of the film industry and of movie-production.
The film, photography and media industry are growing employment sectors that offer various types of jobs in acting, directing, freelance-photography, camera operating, film/video editing and more.
