Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) Feature Filmmaking. Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) Feature Filmmaking., MA in Feature Filmmaking
The collaborative nature of modern film-making means that this is a course for students with aspirations as directors, producers, screenwriters, APs, camera ops, editors and other creative roles, who want to develop both their aesthetic and business skills for a successful career working on feature length documentaries of fiction films. The course teaches you how modern film-makers make feature length projects and offers practical experience of trying to make such projects. We cannot guarantee that your project will get made and your success in academic terms will not depend upon you you having completed a feature (although we are confident that many students will achieve this). All students will graduate with a wealth of professional contacts, a stunning showreel, a fully developed feature film project and the knowledge and contacts for how to get ahead in the film business. The aim is that at the end of the MA in Feature Filmmaking, you will have received a thorough education in the needs and techniques of the micro-budget film business and have the skills to be able to negotiate favourable terms for your current (and feature) projects to be distributed. There are two durations of the MA in Feature Filmmaking - full time over 12 months and part time over 24 months.
