Approaches to Editing
This unit enables students to develop professional, industry standard skills in planning an edit, digitising, and editing pictures and sound under different conditions, including time restraints. Students will develop their own creative skills through work on individual projects, and also via working collaboratively with students on the MA Directing course.
This unit establishes a social, cultural and intellectual context for production work on the course. In combination with the other practical and professional provision provided, it offers a strong critical foundation for the effective realisation of production work. Seminars enable students to engage collectively with narrative theory in a critical and analytical forum.
Advanced Editing Techniques
This unit enables students to study documentary forms, and edit long-form projects, both individually and in collaboration with students on other programmes. Students also undertake a series of workshops to build up their technological competence in using common and contemporary editing platforms.
The media industry is constantly changing! This unit aims to ensure students graduate with a set of skills to enable them to prosper and succeed in the industry. Students study the current debates and trends in the industry in relation to cross-platform commissioning and production. Students will evaluate a range of theoretical and practical tools by applying them to brands that can be explored and exploited across different media platforms.
