Developments in digital film/videography technologies have exploded the possibilities for the distribution and exhibition of cinematic material: films on the internet, films in club spaces, new film clubs and even films on telecommunications networks. This course will encourage students to engage with these types of cultural activities in a positive and creative way. The MA Digital Cinema course is not a 'conventional' film course and is not about the production of 35mm feature films. Rather, it will fully prepare students for the 'brave new world' of film and video production in the digital age.
The main thrust of the programme is to encourage experimentation and innovation as this is what can make the difference between an average and excellent body of cinematic work and can thus help graduates to be more uniquely employable.
Throughout the course students will produce films of varying length in a diverse range of media to be exhibited in an equally broad range of settings. Our facilities range from low-budget formats to high end digital broadcast standard formats and the latest industry editing software.
