From the outset, we aim to develop your technical, creative, reflective and analytical abilities, giving you a thorough grounding in current and emerging media technologies, ways of working and contemporary professional practice, as well as the project management and professional skills needed in this ever-expanding sector.
You’ll produce multiple pieces of work, both individually and collaboratively, from self-reflexive professional portfolios to media projects using film, photography or online platforms. In doing so, you’ll have access to our extensive specialist resources, including video and photography studios, industry-standard software suites, radio studios, specialist IT facilities and our dedicated ‘digital media lab’.
You’ll be taught by staff with significant contemporary industrial, applied research and teaching experience; their expertise spanning film history and theory, experimental film practitioner, multi-media artists, writers, scriptwriters and cinematographers, who have worked with national and international organisations. For example, Clifton Stewart (Senior Lecturer in Media Production) is a screenwriter, curator and programmer for the Art and Algorithms Digital Arts Festival in Florida; our lecturer Brad Porter is a cinematographer with a wide network of contacts in Europe and America; Course Director Dr Kamila Kuc is an experimental filmmaker, writer and curator whose work and curated programmes have been shown nationally and internationally (ICA and BFI, London; New Mexico, Texas, Scotland, Bucharest); and Mez Packer (Senior Lecturer in Interactive Media) is a novelist who has worked with Tindal Street Fiction and Skyros Writers’ Lab among others.
