Campus Full time 2 years October 2017 Portugal Lisbon United Kingdom Edinburgh Estonia Tallinn + 4 more

This two year MA programme is a brand-new highly intensive fiction film making masters degree supported by ERASMUS+. See in detail at www.kinoeyes.eu [+]

The Master This two year MA programme is a brand-new highly intensive fiction film making masters degree supported by ERASMUS+. The programme takes the form of four semesters’ teaching, along with a summer school. The teaching is unique for a film making MA in that it is split between three different film schools in three different European states: Lusófona University in Lisbon, Portugal, Screen Academy Scotland in Edinburgh/ Napier University, UK, and the Baltic Film and Media School in Tallinn, Estonia. The teaching in each campus reflects the strengths of the staff and educational history of each school, so providing each specialist student with a choice of the best possible options for learning. Each school has a substantial track record teaching masters film-making courses. Also unique is the programme’s focus on the feature film as the object of study and aspiration, rather than the short film, as in most other courses. Students will be recruited in the following areas: Directing, screenwriting, producing, cinematography, editing and sound. Around half the teaching will be geared to each specialism, while the rest will consist of transferable skills in film making, creative practice, entrepreneurship and critical thinking - skills that are essential for all film students. Students will form collaborative teams and work towards a funded graduation project. These final thesis films will be expected to perform at first-tier international film festivals. Teaching on the programme will be supplemented by a comprehensive course of professional practice preparation, involving industry professionals from all over Europe, including production and craft specialists, distributors, festival programmers, financiers, lawyers and casting directors. Academic programme KEM offers one single joint curriculum that involves lecturing and specific project development in the different partner schools facilities. KEM’s main academic topic is film and moving image media. The programme particularly focuses on fiction film, either short or feature formats. The programme also deals with the broader competences of film literacy, namely the ability to critically understand the medium and its forms of expression and manipulate the associated language and technical features. Related academic topics are arts education and creativity. KEM’s curriculum integrates theoretical and practical oriented subjects, mostly based on a training trough projects in development methodology, amidst a mix of analytical, critical and experimental didactic approaches that will provide students with an in-depth knowledge of fiction film development while allowing them to explore their creativity and specialise in those aspects of fiction films that correspond to their personal preferences, artistic ambitions, and needed professional skills. KEM focuses on a pentagon shaped educational model covering five core skills: writing, directing, producing, technical execution (cinematography, editing, and sound) and creative programming, a transversal competence that includes parts of all others, and points to the need to integrate film literacy as a nuclear aspect of film education. Course Curriculum KEM - Kino Eyes -The European Movie Masters- is a four semester master degree awarding 120 ECTS. Each semester has 30 ECTS. KEM proposed structure follows the workflow of an actual film production and is aligned with the needs of todays’ professionals and organizations scattered along the film production and distribution value chain. KEM applicants must be students already with prior knowledge in the area and applicants will be selected in accordance with areas of interest, a fact that will later determine their mobility. A total of 30 students will be admitted to the course. 5 on writing, 5 on directing, 5 on production, 5 on cinematography, 5 on editing and 5 on sound design. These students will benefit both from geographical mobility by having the opportunity to circulate between the three countries involved in the program, but also curricular mobility since the program is designed in order to allow students to have contact throughout the course with the different fields of expertise covered in the pentagonal educational model that presides to KEM’s structure. KEM core teaching modules run for an entire semester (15 contact weeks plus two weeks for evaluation) and have the following structure: 1ST SEMESTER ULHT - all together ECTS Methods of creativity 5 Development - ideas and storytelling 10 Aesthetics and technology 5 Introduction to the industry – transformations and opportunities 5 European film heritage 5 2ND SEMESTER NAPIER directors/writers/producers ECTS Development Module 10 Short film Module 10 Feature Film Module 10 BFM - cinematograhers/editors/ sound ECTS Audiovisual dramaturgy 5 Reception psychology 5 Film analysis seminar 5 Contemporary workflows 5 Feature film cinematography, editing and sound 10 3RD SEMESTER 10 Students Every School ECTS Entrepreneurship workshop 5 Transmedia and storytelling workshop 5 Research and development for final project production 10 Advance Short fiction development and production – creative voicing 10 4TH SEMESTER - 10 Students Every School ECTS Fiction Production Project 15 Individual Thesis 15 Diploma Awarded KEM Consortium will award successful students with a multiple degree (including diploma supplements). KEM will grant from the beginning a multiple degree and attached diplomas supplement based on the already existing and locally accredited master courses (second cycle degrees) in the area of fiction film offered by each one of the schools in the consortium, and will from its second edition onwards award a joint master degree with full accreditation and associated diploma supplement. Mobility Scheme The mobility scheme offered by KEM is mandatory, during the first semester the students all work together in Lisbon. This first semester will consist of a leveraging period during which collaboration and team building capacities will be reinforced. Given that the 2nd semester emphasizes specialisation; both Tallinn and Edinburgh have been chosen for the second venue. Students will be divided between the two schools in accordance with their areas of expertise already defined before application. ENU will take 15 students (writers, directors and producers) and BFM the other 15 (cinematographers, editors and sound designers). After the end of the second semester all students will come together in Portugal for a Summer school during which they will present their final semester team and individual projects and the final proposals for last year projects. In the 3rd and 4th semesters the students’ are once again divided amongst the three partner schools, but in this case a team based organization procedure is followed that pushes the students towards defining their own style in the midst of a collaborative environment.
