BA (Hons) Experimental Film Production
This course is a practical production course which is aimed at students who wish to expand their artistic and creative horizons, in the area of experimental film from both practical and theoretical approaches. The course is essentially a creative award, which will cover practical filmmaking skills and a study of the historical and contemporary development of experimental film. Students will participate in practical production modules and exercises, in which aesthetic and technical experimentation will be undertaken. The course has an emphasis on producing innovative and creative films (in the form of digital sound and video production) in the areas of experimental film making via technical, conceptual and aesthetic exploration. You will develop ideas generation and creativity, which aim to challenge audience perceptions of traditional filmmaking. However, the filmmakers’ emphasis remains one of ‘audience reading’ of the film’s message, point and meaning. At Levels 4 and 5, students develop an understanding of the film production process and learn to work in the technical and creative roles of sound and moving image production.
