Storytelling: This unit aims to examine concepts of storytelling across audio visual formats, cultures and production industries. You will engage with practice research methodologies to critically engage with a diverse range of narrative forms and approaches.
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.
The Producer´s Development Process: The producer is often the first and last person on a project, carrying it through from conceptualisation to distribution. By developing your own fictional/documentary idea, you will learn what it takes to transform an initial concept into a product that is ‘fundable’, ‘makable’ and ‘watchable’. This is achieved by looking at how to generate ideas, develop treatments and work productively with other creative departments (especially writers and directors). You will be introduced to emerging production methods to develop projects that can make a positive impact on our world. In this way, the unit equips you with the entrepreneurial competencies to spearhead meaningful projects in a highly competitive marketplace.
´Making it happen´: Selling Creative Ideas: You will learn how to mould your own idea into a viable project within the contemporary financial landscape. A particular focus of the unit will fall on the tension that exists between viewing creative artefacts as products of cultural significance vis-à-vis products that develop within an economically driven industry. The culmination of the unit’s practical focus will be the delivery of a well-rounded pitch of your own idea to a small panel and an audience of your peers. The unit is designed to develop your skills as a producer to confidently sell creative ideas that are sensitive to industry demands.
Media Production Master´s Project: This unit represents the culmination of your studies and your emergence as an independent thinker in the field producing. It is an opportunity for you to demonstrate (a) what you have learned throughout the year and (b) what inspires you as a producer. Through a series of negotiations with your Project Supervisor, you will develop a suitably complex project that you can use as a calling card for the industry showcasing your abilities as a producer.
