This could be a film you've shot or directed, an animation, an article you've written, or any other creative project. If you don't have any creative work that you want to submit, you can instead provide a clear narrative represented through ten photographic stills. Arrange the stills on a maximum of three sides of A4 and save the project as a PDF no larger than 2MB. Please also provide an explanation of your story, identifying the key moments that need to be presented visually. For each shot you will need to consider: What is the narrative function of the shot, eg introducing the setting? Introducing the characters? Showing a turning point in the story? Resolving the story? What information should each shot provide and what framing will best serve this? Close-up? Wide-shot? High angle? Low angle? What about the composition? For example, do you want the viewer to feel comfortable (a balanced composition) or unsettled (unbalanced composition)? What about visual variety? Following wide shot with another wide shot might diminish the viewer's interest. [-]

Non-Academic Conditions: DBS Checks required, Interviews, Occupational Health clearance required International applicants who are not studying ABRSM qualifications are encouraged to host a portfolio online and provide us with the URL or submit the URL in pdf format by email in order for us to be able to assess the level of musicianship. This will assist us in deciding whether the applicant is suitable to be invited to interview/audition. CD or hardcopy formats submitted by post to our International Admissions Office are also acceptable but please note that these will not be returned to applicants.Portfolios should contain 10-15 minutes of a varied music on their first and second study instruments that best represents the applicant's musicianship. Interviews As this is professional therapy training, all short-listed applicants are expected to attend for the interview procedure which includes an experiential music therapy group with other candidates in addition to an individual interview and audition with music therapy lecturers. These are considered vital to the assessment of the candidate's suitability and readiness for training, as well as allowing the candidate to experience something of the teaching methods of the course and consider whether it is appropriate for them. Preparation For the interview and audition you should prepare a brief piece of your choice on each of your instruments. If you only play one instrument please prepare two brief contrasting pieces on that instrument. If piano is not one of your main studies, you will also be asked to demonstrate your keyboard skills. Please be ready to improvise as directed on the day. If voice is not one of your main studies, you will be asked to sing a short song of your choice. An accompanist will be provided if required. Video conference interview In very exceptional cases, for applicants who live in countries a long distance away and have specific reasons why they cannot attend an interview, we may consider a video conference interview. This will only be offered if you give clear reasons why it is impossible to attend the interview/audition. You should note that video conference interviews can only be offered if you have professional video conferencing equipment at your disposal. It is not possible to have a Skype interview.

              More information: www.anglia.ac.uk/maphotographyThis course is designed for photographers interested in defining their practice and becoming critical practitioners. It will invite you to experiment, research and disseminate your practice. It is a forward-thinking course, approaching photography as a global industry in which practitioners need to be aware of international discourses and opportunities.

              TeachingAll lecturers on this course are photographic practitioners and researchers with extensive international experience. Teaching takes place in purpose-built art and photographic facilities and lecture theatres. You will have access to the facilities outside of taught sessions to develop and complete your coursework.The team has a wide range of research interests and the scope of its practices is global. This international dimension of the degree is underpinned by staff from different cultures and backgrounds who understand the requirements and expectations of many professional environments. As a whole, the team is experienced in international and cross-disciplinary projects (including, among others, photography and video, documentary and political ideology, digital installation and critical visual deconstruction, fashion photography and gender studies, post-colonial archival research).The artistic and research output of the MA staff, as well as their teaching experience, makes this course home to a diverse set of photographic practices: from documentary and fine art to institutional or historical critique; from traditional processes or found photography to digital technical innovation; from theory-informed to theory-led research projects. Every team member is an active photographic practitioner, aware of current trends and innovations in the field. The curriculum has been designed to ensure you develop your individual practice and interests in photography. With this in mind, the modular structure focuses on: the relationship of practice to research and vice versa; the role of sequence and series in developing visual language; the relationship between text and image; and contemporary dialogues in key theoretical and practical areas.You will undertake practice-based research in a number of modules before undertaking a written dissertation, allowing you to more clearly identify an area for written exploration. This course is structured so that each of the four 30-credit modules, including the written dissertation, is completed before - and should inform the design and focus of - the self-directed 60-credit Masters project. As the course develops, there is an increasing requirement for independent and self-directed work, culminating in the Masters project.... [-]
