The MA Directing course equips you with a comprehensive skillset to work across all screen platforms – film, TV, commercials and online. During your studies you’ll do a unique industry project that will give you experience working with external clients, not offered by any other film school in the world.
- Practical. Around 70% of the curriculum is practical, hands-on experience. You will have an opportunity to work with professional actors, shoot on location and participate in moving camera exercises
- Teamwork. Work collaboratively with students on other MA courses (Cinematography, Screenwriting, Producing etc.) as a creative crew to mirror the industry practice. Experience what it takes to deliver the project from start to finish, and develop your communication, negotiation, and project management skills
- Working towards an Industry assignment. During the Director’s Craft and Creative Collaboration module, you will conceive, create and deliver what we refer to internally as an ‘Industry Project’. You will work within a creative team and respond to a professional brief from a commercial, public sector or charitable ‘client’, to produce a spec shot and showcase your creative talent to industry professionals.
- Industry-facing. Learn from the best industry professionals, including Cinematographers, Casting Directors, Location Managers and Production Designers.
