COURSE OVERVIEW
UCAS CODE W620 As a student on our very collaborative and practice-based FdA Lighting & Camera for Stage & Screen course here at The Northern School of Art, you will develop the skills and the discipline of lighting for stage and screen and developing high-end camera skills for screen production. All of 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.
COURSE DETAILS
Aligning with other programmes at The Northern School of Art, there is a unique opportunity for you to develop a collaborative approach to stage and screen production, mirroring the workings of industry. You will create a product on screen or in a theatrical production that will showcase your skills and abilities to create new and original content with cutting edge 4K technology, as well as have the opportunity to create both traditional 16mm film and create lighting solutions for contemporary theatre practice. This will give you a broad showreel of work over the two year programme, to take into the industry or to allow you to complete a top up year to obtain your BA (Honours). As well as having a brand new TV / film studio and 100 seater theatre space, we also boast having our very own commercial sound stage facility next door to our teaching facilities, which are the largest in the North of England. These facilities allow students from our stage and screen programmes the possibility of work experience on professional film and television programmes, as well as industrial links within both the worlds of stage and screen, providing guest speakers the opportunity to enhance the student experience.
