This course will develop your knowledge of factual UK TV and digital media content production, and your creative and technical skills, to an advanced level. It offers a broad and intensively practical foundation, mixing theory with current industry practice. Along the way, youll make seven films of differing lengths and write a dissertation on whatever media subject excites and interests you.
Focusing on two key roles, the director and the producer (which in current factual programming are merged into one), youll explore the dynamics of the industry, and what it takes to succeed in a constant cycle of change. Youll learn to become a visual storyteller, a communicator, a collaborator, a motivator and a problem solver. Youll also develop the skills of scheduling, production managing, budgeting and marketing programmes. Although the emphasis is on factual programming, there is scope and flexibility to develop more creative films.
With specialist workshops on the technical skills of camera operation, sound, lighting and editing, youll develop professional skills in screen-based production. This will be supported by tutorials, diary work, and independent research, giving you a strong critical and contextual grounding for your practical work.
Youll be encouraged to collaborate with other students both on the course and across different disciplines and platforms, helping you to become a flexible media professional who can take on the production and delivery of high quality video content for many different clients.

You might, for instance, develop a particular interest in observational documentary, natural history films, or science programming.
Youll gain specialist skills that will be useful for traditional, experimental and creative documentary making, or films for education, training, public relations, current affairs, marketing, and campaigning. The course will equip you to forge a portfolio or freelance career, giving you the ability to make high quality content for broadcast, web, film festival or cinema.
