This Masters is for students who want to complement their ideas and aspirations with the practical skills needed to make film and television programmes. Whether you plan to join the production team of a film crew, shape a career as a researcher, associate producer or development exec, or even run your own independent production company, this course will give you the practical training and theoretical grounding to help you to achieve your ambitions in the dynamic world of media production.
As a creative producer, you will learn how to develop your ideas as viable projects and sell them in a highly competitive marketplace. Thanks to expert tuition from professionals with experience from across industry, you will also become accomplished in the art of production management.
Working collaboratively across the year with other students in related subjects (directing, editing, sound design, screen writing and cinematography), you will plan and produce your own projects and learn how to work collaboratively within a creative environment. Your final production project will serve as evidence of your abilities to develop, plan and manage a project of your choice, be that a short film, a business plan for a production company or a development plan for a TV series – the choice is yours. There is also an option to develop an alternative research-focused project if you prefer.
You may have an undergraduate qualification in a related subject or may be able to show your suitability for this programme of study through associated work-experience or evidence of and outputs from other related activities.
As a student on this course you'll have the chance to take advantage of opportunities with RedBalloon, an award winning professional production unit based in the Faculty of Media and Communication.
