Summary

This course offers you the opportunity to develop your creative and technical skills as an independent filmmaker working in fictional film. You'll have the opportunity to write and direct your own Short Film or follow a specialist route as a Head of Department in film production.

You'll develop high-level skills in a learning environment which nurtures technical excellence in the creation of cinematic sound and image. You'll also develop personal creativity and the ability to collaborate effectively within a team in pursuit of a shared cinematic vision.

The course allows you to experience the rigours of filmmaking by reflecting the realities of current film practice, within the supportive structure of our extensive Film School. It will enhance your understanding of the professional demands of the film industry and fully equip you for a freelance career, should you so desire.

You'll have the opportunity to engage in critical debate around current theoretical approaches to filmmaking practice, as well as developing your own practical project alongside other like-minded students.

At UCA, you'll also benefit from access to a fantastic selection of cutting edge facilities, including 16mm and digital cinema cameras, advanced sound recording equipment, a purpose-built film studio and high-quality post-production suites.

Our graduates have gone on to work on some of the biggest box office movies of recent years - including Gravity, the Harry Potter franchise, The Dark Knight, Mission Impossible, Skyfall, Godzilla, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Rush, Total Recall, Fast & Furious 6 and many more - as well as on major TV programmes and other projects with leading media companies. Some alumni have also started their own companies, with recent successes including Kode Media, Bright Stem and This Place.
