Subject Area: Film Studies

This course provides some practical experience in video-making and gives you an understanding of the basic concepts that underlie a video production, from script to final cut. You will have the opportunity to create a range of short video works using mini-DV, HD and mobile technologies. You will be introduced to the basic technical skills of operating a camera, lighting, scripting, pre-production planning, editing and presentation. The course aims to increase your practical knowledge and awareness of film language, style, process, and technique by way of craft-based functional workshop exercises, independent assembly and a substantial group-generated production process. The course encourages collaborative working practices to a professional standard.
