MA Film is a highly vocational and hands-on course that will develop your understanding of the creative, commercial and practical aspects of digital film production.
About this course:
You will expand your technical skills in digital film, working across a number of specialisms from development and finance, to exhibition and distribution. The course places a strong emphasis on collaborative production to reflect the professional realities of the sector, where the traditional auteur model is becoming less relevant. You will learn how to build your professional networks and become equipped to operate in a wide range of industry disciplines.
Who should take this course
MA Film is a practical course in the production of film drama; from development and finance to distribution and exhibition. It is designed for students who want a hands-on, industry-orientated course in the creative, technical and practical aspects of digital film production.
Taught through a combination of tutorials, lectures, technical workshops, mentoring, masterclasses and work placements, the course allows you to focus on one key specialism and develop it at postgraduate level while encouraging you to engage creatively with related disciplines and wider filmic processes.
Within the Collaborative Unit, you have a choice of pathways where you can collaborate with external partners as well as with other courses within UAL. These pathways could be realised through work placements, cross-disciplinary collaboration, initiatives towards the Major Project or a combination of activities.
The theoretical programme underscores all of the practical elements of the course and offers a shared process for students to explore both their own and each other's work.
What to expect:
The course aims to produce graduates who are self-reliant, highly motivated and able to successfully navigate this increasingly competitive industry. Applicants must demonstrate developed skills and an understanding of their chosen specialism at application, with major and minor roles allocated accordingly.
