Documentary filmmaking is currently a very fluid medium. In light of this your specially tailored modules will cover a host of areas, allowing you to learn how to develop crowd-based productions, interactive and virtual reality content, as well as how to shoot cinematic content using the latest cinema cameras. With access to excellent equipment and resources, there is a strong practical focus to the course with a large number of hands-on workshops. These will ensure that you gain confidence in all technical aspects of the production process.
Taught in the heart of London, the world’s third busiest city for film production, you will be immersed in the London film and TV industry through access to world-class archives, festivals, screenings and industry events. The master’s degree will also prepare you to work in film or in creative fields more generally. Both industries form a large and growing part of both London’s and the UK economy. There are nearly three million creative jobs accounted for in the UK and more than a third of these are based in London. There is a huge amount of both large-scale and small-scale film and audio-visual production in the city and a great deal of related professional work that surrounds and supports it.
