You will gain a rich understanding of the theories underpinning filmmaking. Creative expression, successful collaboration, identifying and nurturing specialisms, and fully preparing to enter that industry are a further focus.
The course is taught by filmmakers experienced in a range techniques in the studios, classrooms and editing suites at UCW’s Loxton Campus – a bespoke facility for the creative arts. Students on this course can also take advantage of everything on offer at our new University Centre in the Winter Gardens building on Weston seafront. You will also be able to use all of UCW’s filmmaking equipment, such as cameras, mics and lighting rigs, at no extra charge.
As well as learning how to make fantastic films, you will showcase your work in some in the most renowned venues in the South West - in recent years our students' films have been shown in the Watershed, Arnolfini and Cube Cinema in Bristol – and work towards producing a professional-standard showreel to demonstrate your versatility and specialisms as a filmmaker.
You will also work in collaboration with your peers to curate the Dirigo Film Festival; gathering submissions from young filmmakers in the UK and beyond and then promoting and hosting a gala event to celebrate them.
The course culminates in students joining forces as a single in-house production company to make a short film. This involves pitching ideas to a panel of experts in film and everyone taking on professional roles to reflect their individual career aspirations. This usually involves shooting on location, at an additional expense, and in the past has seen students film in Lisbon, Madrid, Berlin and Nantes.
