COURSE OVERVIEW
UCAS CODE W692 As a student on our very collaborative and practice-based BA (Hons) Film, TV & Theatre Production programme here at The Northern School of Art, you will develop the skills and the discipline of scriptwriting, directing, and producing for both stage and screen. This will give you a distinct competitive advantage within the industry, which you can use to forge a path in the Film, TV and Theatre industries. As a student on this programme, you can specialise in Scriptwriting for stage and screen, Directing for both stage and screen and Production Management for stage and screen - or a combination of all the above - making them readily employable in both marketplaces.
COURSE DETAILS
Aligning with other stage and screen programmes, there is the opportunity for you to develop a collaborative approach to your stage and screen production, mirroring the workings of industry. You will create a product on screen or in a theatrical production, which will showcase your skills and abilities to create new and original content with cutting edge 4K technology, as well as the opportunity to create both traditional 16mm film and contemporary theatre practice; this will give you the broadest showreel possible, making your employment opportunities vast. You will work for live clients and submit for festivals and competitions throughout the programme, including the 16mm Kodak Commercial Awards, RTS Awards and National Student Drama Festival amongst others. Furthermore, our current Production Design and Costume degrees can also provide opportunities for collaboration, so to offer the students a fully rounded and holistic teaching environment where they have access to a complete production process.
