This course develops conceptual thinkers and professionals who can deliver ideas across moving image industries.
Our moving image course has been designed for students who are looking for an innovative, creative and critical opportunity to develop their work. You will engage with video, digital editing, sound and animation to build a strong conceptual and technical basis for your development. We provide opportunities to work in more traditional areas of moving image such as short narrative film, promotions, and branding, animation and motion graphics whilst also developing skills in areas such as 3D projection, video mapping, and CGI.
The course forms an intensive arena for the discussion, development, and production of high quality original audio-visual work. You will also be encouraged to engage with the wider context of moving image practice, for instance through submitting work to festivals and competitions. There may be opportunities to work on ‘live’ industry briefs or with start-ups from the incubation area. You will be invited to attend guest lectures from industry professionals and participate in industry-focused projects, collaborations, and workplace visits.
The need for both film and video content means that there is a growing need not just for producers but also digital advertising professionals who have a deep understanding of the whole workflow around moving image.
What your course will look like:
unit 1: Technology Issues In the Technology Issues unit you will have the opportunity to prototype ideas and engage with industry standard processes, techniques and technology relevant to moving image.
unit 2: Research Process The Research Process and Technology units will enable you to deepen your conceptual thinking and technical application through the development of your individual practice.
unit 3: Business and Innovation The business context of new technologies has transformed the relationships between traditional film, video and digital formats.
unit 4: Concept and Prototyping The Concept and Prototyping unit will develop your main concepts with reference to theoretical and business contexts.
unit 5: Major project The Major Project represents the culmination of students’ investigation and the final stage of the research strategy. This is a substantial piece of self-managed work that is underpinned by advanced practice-based methodologies and processes.
