Summary

The Director is central to the creative process in media production. This Master’s is designed to build and develop your knowledge in that field, enabling you to step up to the challenge of delivering award-winning productions.

It’s a hands-on course which provides many opportunities for practical production across different platforms and genres in both factual and fictional film-making. It will enhance your storytelling skills and your technical understanding of film, television and transmedia production. You’ll develop advanced skills as a director in line with both current industry practice and the traditions of independent filmmaking.

The Faculty of Media & Communication encourages dynamic collaborations between students across courses. Working with the producing, scriptwriting, cinematography, sound and editing students, you’ll create a showcase of your skills as a visual, creative storyteller. Many of these collaborations have continued beyond the course as students set up their own production companies.

This comprehensive course will equip you with the skills to understand and manage the entire production process, from effective planning and pre-visualisation, through effective and efficient work on location, to overseeing creative post-production work.

Under the guidance of experienced media professionals, you will develop your own directorial craft and style, and will gain a sound theoretical grounding in the social, cultural and intellectual context for media production work. You will also acquire other related skills which will increase your employability.

The final production project will allow you to use the technical and directorial skills you have developed to mastermind your own work in collaboration with other students within the Faculty of Media & Communication. As an alternative, you can choose a research-based option to undertake a detailed study of an aspect of directing.
