Course description

Full Time

Course content

'Have you ever wondered about how a film is made? What makes an actor a star? What is an auteur? How a screenplay is developed? How to become a film critic? Film Studies allows you to study one of our most important art forms equipping you with the language to analyse cinema with a critic’s eye. Not only will you get to examine films from all around the world, researching their contexts and understanding their culture but you will also gain the skills to recreate every stage of a film’s production from storyboarding and scriptwriting through to camera-work, soundtrack design and editing. Film Studies does not stop there - you also get all the knowledge and support to distribute and exhibit your own films! Work experience opportunities are arranged to suit each individual student and this year many have worked at the Royal Exchange Theatre and produced professional videos for Tameside Council. Many Film Studies students have gone on to complete apprenticeships with film and media companies Film Four and Tameside Radio whilst others have gone onto university to study journalism, editing, camera-work, sound engineering, creative writing, scriptwriting or to continue to study film at degree level.
