Masters in Screen Studies

Birmingham City University Faculty of Art, Design and Media
Campus or Online Part time 1 - 3 years September 2017 United Kingdom Birmingham

MA Screen Studies plunges you deep into the latest debates around the function and importance of screen based media within a rapidly-changing media landscape. Drawing on a combination of film and television theory, the Screen Studies master’s degree at Birmingham School of Media, encourages you to actively participate in, and contribute to the development of ideas in the field and to the strong research culture of the school. This media theory geared master’s degree, available on-campus or by distance learning, gives you space to think about the ways in which audiences make sense of media, as well as the formal and aesthetic qualities of media texts, as a way into exploring your own practice or scholarly or media research interests. Convergence Culture The point of departure for MA Screen Studies is what Henry Jenkins famously described as ‘convergence culture.’ Increasingly, audiences watch television online, through mobile or tablet devices, and access movies through a range of platforms and formats, cinema being just one. The ability to make and broadcast video has begun to change the ways in which we understand the relationships between producers and consumers. Media convergence is about much more than technological change, and in this master’s degree you will explore new ways of thinking about production, distribution and consumption of screen-based media and our relationship to it. Key Facts The Screen Studies MA reflects the changing nature of the media industries and the need for postgraduate study to cross disciplinary boundaries. The master’s degree is a mix of theory and practice, determined by you. You will be actively involved in assessment design; you produce the work that you want to be assessed. The MA course is adaptable and designed to reflect your individual interests and needs. You'll be taught by a team of highly active academic researchers and media practitioners. [+]

Today’s language of screen music has shifted. While many scores still provide a musical commentary on the action, others find a way to integrate music into the fabric of the film itself, creating a seamless weave analogous to the camerawork or editing, to the assimilation of music into the sound world of the film as a whole.

Best Part time Masters in Film Studies 2017. Composing for Film and Television This course commences in January each year. Our emphasis on collaboration means that Composing students are informed and involved throughout the filmmaking process. In particular, composers work closely with other students in Editing and Sound Post Production, increasing their understanding of the relationship between audio and moving images. Today’s language of screen music has shifted. While many scores still provide a musical commentary on the action, others find a way to integrate music into the fabric of the film itself, creating a seamless weave analogous to the camerawork or editing, to the assimilation of music into the sound world of the film as a whole. Sound design and music grow ever closer - in fact, the roles of sound designer and composer are becoming blurred to the extent that a close collaboration between the two processes is often essential. The application of music to film - the choices inherent in the "when", "how" and "why" - all stem from an informed understanding of the intention of the film and the contribution music could make to it. Informed understanding, musical versatility and the fostering of an individual musical voice are the intentions of this course and these are determined by the practical and intellectual demands on composers working in the industry. Composing graduates are qualified to take on all forms of work in film and television as well as productions in multimedia and interactive programming. TUTORS Head of Post Production is Award-winning Re-Recording Mixer Dean Humphreys, who has worked with many of the world's leading directors, including Roman Polanski, Ridley Scott, Luc Besson, Bernardo Bertolucci and Franco Zeffirelli. Dean has also been the Sound Supervisor or Re-Recording mixer for major television series such as Kingdom (Stephen Fry) and Primeval, in addition to films including The Pianist (for which he won a César award), Interview With The Vampire, The Ghost Writer and Donnie Brasco. ALUMNI Recent graduate composing credits include Atonement which netted NFTS graduate Dario Marianelli an Oscar, Golden Globe and Ivor Novello in the Best Original Score category; Wallander, the television drama series, and feature film Endgame, both of which earned BAFTAs for Best Original Score for NFTS graduate Martin Phipps. Martin also received Emmy Award Nominations for his scores on Great Expectations and Sense and Sensibility. Composer Rob Lane also received Emmy nominations for his scores on Longford and HBO's John Adams, as well as winning a BAFTA for Elizabeth I (TV) and a nomination for Jane Eyre. CURRICULUM The Composing course is developmental and progressive. In year one, students are taught the techniques and contexts which inform writing music for the screen. The first term comprises an intensive process during which students compose to a variety of exercises, each one chosen to focus on a particular problem of film composition. These exercises are completed by each student and discussed in seminars and individually assessed. In term two, further exercises concentrate on issues having to do with scoring for live instruments, the combination of live and electro-acoustic elements and the integration a limited range of sound design into film scores. In addition, students will begin engaging with projects generated by other students at the NFTS. This process will continue and dominate the third term. Each student contribution to those films will also be assessed. Students will also participate in visits from industry professionals. In year two, students’ activities will be dominated primarily by work generated from other parts of the school. However, lectures, seminars and the occasional workshop will be provided to clarify and expand issues arising from those projects. As in year 1, students will also participate in visits from industry professionals. YEAR ONE A series of composing workshops combining practical exercises and seminars: Basic narrative techniques Midi, sampling and audio Combining music and sound Narrative with dialogue Non-fiction scoring Instrumentation and orchestration Composing to script Improvisation Ongoing analysis of feature film soundtracks and film structure Orchestration and recording with live musicians Workshops with Sound Design and Editing students: Abstract Film Workshop Without Images - a sound-only project Animation exercises Dramaturgy Workshop – focusing on script and script analysis, blocking and cover, and performance Editing the Scene - editing drama rushes to learn the basics of scene structure Productions Zen and Beyond - fiction workshop focusing on visual storytelling Documentary poetry exercise collaborating with Documentary Direction, Editing and Sound Design First Year Film – the major 1st year fiction production collaborating with all other departments Investigative Documentary - the major first year documentary production Cross Spec - an introduction to film language and storytelling involving all departments YEAR TWO Orchestration and recording with live musicians Improvisation Continued analysis of films 2nd year short fiction production, shot on a digital format Co-composing a feature film Graduation films in documentary, fiction and animation Unlike other schools, all production costs are met by the School. In addition you will be given a cash Production Budget. NFTS students are engaged in more productions as part of the curriculum than any of our competitors. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS The Composing MA course is part of the Post Production department, where we are looking to assemble a group of students with diverse and varied backgrounds. There is no 'typical' student or perfect candidate who conforms to a mandatory list of qualifications. You might have had some Industry experience in your chosen field, or a background in the arts or other media. You may now be looking for a further professional qualification, or wish to broaden your knowledge of composing for screen, taking you to a higher level of work. Students normally have a degree in music but applicants with equivalent practical experience are also accepted; some composing experience is preferred. We look for composers with a strong personal style, a flexible approach and an intelligent feel for drama and narrative. Candidates should normally be able to notate the music they wish to be performed acoustically, have an understanding of the main historical styles and be able to communicate with others using non-musical terms. It is essential that applicants have a strong and demonstrable interest in film. APPLY WITH Application Criteria On receipt of the application form, duly completed and signed, each applicant will be provided with a link and password to download two film clips. They will be asked to write music to each of these clips, and return their completed work as Quicktime video files with sound and music track, either as downloadable links or as DVD’s sent to the school. On being accepted for interview by the school, the applicants will be invited to bring further material that may be of interest for examination at the discretion of the interviewers. [-]

This will display the path to convert creative content with different formats and platforms into cash. Students, as distributors, learn to take on the role of intermediaries between the rightholders and platforms (cinema, theme park, TV channel, operator of video on demand, online retailer). From the point of view of the platform, they are able to offer innovative experiences with appropriate budgets to final users. The financial issue is related to the collection of funds for the projects: private sources of finance (business angels, venture capital and crowd-funding), public sources (European Union), national and regional media as direct grants and indirect support such as tax credits, tax incentives. Participants are expected to approach the management of trade agreements between the industry, by presenting different business models (pay-TV) and study the foundations of digital communication: how to astutely plan and communicate a brand, content, social gaming or offers in real-time. The pathway of study culminates in the development of a Final Project, an initiative of startup, an upgrade for a company in this sector that already exists or a business proposal for a business partner.
