Brief Description of Programme and Modules

(Core Modules and Elective Modules)

Course Description:

This course is suitable for students who are studying or holding a UK HND, foundation degree or a higher education diploma overseas as the course gives students the opportunity to top-up their existing qualification to a full BA honours degree and to further build on and refine their existing knowledge and skills.

Course Outcomes

- This course aims to allow students to further build on and refine existing knowledge and skills through hands-on workshops on the technical aspects of moving image, screenwriting and creating short films and TV programmes.

- Students will have the opportunity to work in professional-standard film and TV studios, editing and grading suites.

- The programme will cover modules such as The Extended Essay and Screen Production.

- This course has been designed to cover the below compulsory core modules and allows the student to explore different areas of film and television production. Students can pursue subjects in film or television production that suit their interests, skills and career aspirations.

All of the following are Compulsory Core Modules:

MD6518: Screen Production
- As a compulsory level 6 module, the aim of Screen Production is to allow students to continue to specialise in film and video production by producing work of their choosing and particular interest. The module allows students to make factual, fictional, reality, arthouse or experimental content, with the only restriction being that content cannot be produced live (i.e. in a live studio setting), but otherwise the module allows students to explore a particular aspect or aspects of screen production in more depth.

As this is a level 6 module it is expected that students will meet self-imposed standards of production, both creatively and technically.

MD6811: The Producer

- This module builds upon production skills acquired in levels 1 & 2 to give students a greater understanding of the role of the producer. Different theoretical frameworks will be examined and then used in response to a practical assignment.

MD6835: Work Experience for TV Production
- This module allows students to develop an understanding of the professional practices associated with working in the Television industry. Students will research, secure and undertake a period or work experience or industrial placement in a business or organisation appropriate to the field of study.

MD6932: The Extended Essay

- This module provides the opportunity for students to pursue through independent study a research project on an aspect of the media of their choice

The following are Optional Modules and students must complete three of four:

MD6705: Cult Film and Television
- This course examines various approaches to American cult film and television studies, including the development of cult audiences, the selling of cult media, the relationship of cult film and television to mass communication, authorial approaches to the creation of cult projects, and theoretical readings of cult film and television.

MD6818: Scriptwriting
