Course Summary

The MA Moving Image and Sound course offers you the space to develop your practice, whether short film production, avant garde/fine art filmmaking, or documentary. We welcome film makers and animators, as well as those interested in sound design and sonic arts.

The course will accelerate the development of your practice and refine your technical and production skills while encouraging you to explore the social, cultural and historical context of your work.

We will encourage you to challenge your own audiovisual practice and to strive for originality through experimentation with concepts, issues and materials and creative collaborations relating to moving image and/or sound design.

Through intensive study, you will refine the practical, technological and conceptual skills necessary to create original and innovative work, and will be encouraged to showcase your work to diverse audiences.

You will join a community of practitioners and researchers with diverse specialisms and will have opportunities to collaborate as well as work individually. We regularly invite composers, film makers and animators to run sessions alongside our academic community of creative media producers.


The Award Specific Unit offers two units where subject specialist issues are explored, promoting the acquisition of new knowledge and skills.
