In this module, you will become familiar with the major technical and aesthetic questions involved in planning, shooting and editing a short film. You will be taught how to link these questions to themes currently animating research in film studies, and develop your filmmaking skills as a research-informed practice.

Please note: the production week of this course is expected to be the first week of the Easter vacation. Students must be available during this week, and should be prepared for the time commitment required during the post-production phase.

Coordinator:  Dr Simon Ward
