Department of Theatre, Film and Television launches new MA in Digital Film and Television Production

The Department of Theatre, Film and Television is to launch a new Masters degree in Digital Film and Television Production, with the first students due to start in October 2011. The course will offer students an intensive programme that will equip them for the challenges of entering the rapidly changing film and television industries.

Course convener David Hickman said: "We want to offer students an artistic and technical route map into professional film- and television programme-making. Over time, we expect the MA to create a distinguished roster of filmmakers and television innovators – as directors, producers, writers, cinematographers or editors."

Students on the course will have access to two full broadcast quality TV studios, a large shooting stage, high-end professional kit including two RED camera systems, and a range of state-of-the-art post production equipment.
