MA Film is a practical course in the production of film drama, from development and finance to distribution and exhibition.
It is designed for students who want a hands-on, industry-orientated course, in the creative, technical and practical aspects of digital film production.
Taught through a combination of tutorials, lectures, technical workshops, mentoring, masterclasses and work placements, the course allows you to focus on one key specialism and develop it at postgraduate level, while encouraging you to engage creatively with related disciplines and wider filmic processes.
Within the collaborative unit you have a choice of pathways where you can collaborate with external partners and other courses within UAL. These pathways could be realised through work placements, cross-disciplinary collaboration, initiatives towards the Major Project or a combination of activities.
The theoretical programme underscores all of the practical elements of the course and offers a shared process for students to explore both their own and each other’s work.
What to expect
- The course aims to produce graduates who are self-reliant, highly motivated and able to successfully navigate this increasingly competitive industry.
