MA - Master of Arts
Film / Video Production
Times are changing in film production. The processes we’re used to no longer correlate with budgets, production techniques or distribution methods, but the machine hasn’t evolved along with its component parts.
The film industry needs artists who can adapt to changing production environments; practitioners who have the ability to invent new paradigms in storytelling. If your interest in film production extends beyond the standard, and into a cutting edge, practice-based approach by way of emerging workflows and frontier technology, then this is the course for you.
Studying at Salford’s campus in MediaCityUK places you in the heart of the UK’s burgeoning media industry. Here, you will employ a rigorous process of artistic self-analysis and reflection, while developing as a versatile and nimble filmmaker - through a discipline that views perceived limitations as opportunities for creative expansion.
