The studio facilities of the University will be augmented by those of One8six and ARRI these being our strategic partners in this programme and our participants during its validation. It is important to note that we have the key 35 and S16mm and digital production camera systems in house permanently available for these students to use along with the associated grip, lighting and post production software systems. Our 2 and 4k scanning and film recording is done with strategic partnership with LipSyncPost with whom the course was designed, the strategic intent being the training of highly capable special effects artists.
Students generate their show reels throughout the twelve months of the degree. From October to May taught courses are undertaken then from May to September the final project is completed.
The lecturing staff has a substantial background in feature film and television production and will be augmented with distinguished guest speakers during the program.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It is now possible to complete our programme in just a single year. The fee for the course is our standard domestic or international student Masters fee for a one year programme. In addition you will need to spend around £1,500 on film and processing as part of your studies and to complete your project and coursework. This keeps the programme very affordable in these challenging times.
