An exhibition of photographs by students on the MA Cinematography for Film and Television programme.
On the MA Media Production Framework FMC we are fortunate to have a body of international students from diverse backgrounds with a broad range of filmmaking knowledge and experience.
In redesigning the MA Cinematography unit: Camera Image Style and Motion, the teaching team felt it was important to examine the core principles of photography in relation to the moving image. The question was how to engage students with these fundamental principles in an approach that was exciting and relevant whilst acknowledging their filmmaking experience.
This exhibition represents the culmination of a series of 10 photographic briefs designed as non-assessed formative assignments, encouraging students to engage with these essential photographic skills.
Students were asked to ‘think outside the box’ experiment and have fun with these exercises. The results speak for themselves, with students producing challenging and ambitious work, contributing to their cinematography skills and enhancing the visual quality of films produced by the MA Media Production framework.
