The MA Film Production course is for talented and emerging filmmakers seeking to learn through making, to look beyond the short film, to define themselves as artists within film production and to gain that vital experience demanded by the industry.
“It doesn’t have anything to do with the budget of the film. It has to do with the scope and scale of ambition, and the skill that people brought to it to realize that ambition.” James Schamus – Producer.
On the course there will be opportunities to collaborate, to research and to develop projects together with other filmmakers that can extend beyond the course and into the industry. You will be taught on specific discipline-focused and dedicated pathways, enhancing your skills and knowledge in that pathway together with its relationship to the key aspects of the work of film production.
