You´ll also develop critical and constructive approaches to feedback in order to advance your own work and the work of your peers.
Storytelling: This unit aims to examine concepts of storytelling across audio visual formats, cultures and production industries. You’ll engage with practice research methodologies to critically engage with a diverse range of narrative forms and approaches.

Story Development: This unit focuses on the scriptwriting development process, in terms of the writer’s role and the skills required for supporting and taking part in creative collaboration. You´ll choose a substantial scripted project to craft and shape into a range of industry development documents. These documents will then form the basis of your Media Production Master´s Project.
Approaches to Industry: An introduction to key skills and knowledge you´ll need for employment in the media industries. An opportunity to develop your ambitions and strategies for entering the creative industries wherever you choose.
