Film Studies has now replaced the Media Studies option and is a focussed course that allows students to engage with film-making and planning as well as analysing films both from the Hollywood studios and foreign language films. If you are a student who wants to develop their writing skills and planning skills as well as having a love of films then this option will allow you to develop while studying the films you enjoy. The film production element of the course also allows students to work independently to produce a short two-minute film that shows ‘tension’ on screen.
The industries that this course helps you to prepare for are:
- Film Industry
- Technical production (editing/camera person/ set designer)
Assessment: There are two assessment components.
Component one (55%): Internally assessed project
Component two (45%): Written examination
