MA Film is a practical course in the production of film drama, from development and finance to distribution and exhibition.

It is designed for students who want a hands-on, industry-orientated course, in the creative, technical and practical aspects of digital film production.

Taught through a combination of tutorials, lectures, technical workshops, mentoring, masterclasses and work placements, the course allows you to focus on one key specialism and develop it at postgraduate level, while encouraging you to engage creatively with related disciplines and wider filmic processes.

Within the collaborative unit you have a choice of pathways where you can collaborate with external partners and other courses within UAL. These pathways could be realised through work placements, cross-disciplinary collaboration, initiatives towards the Major Project or a combination of activities.
The theoretical programme underscores all of the practical elements of the course and offers a shared process for students to explore both their own and each other’s work.
What to expect
The course aims to produce graduates who are self-reliant, highly motivated and able to successfully navigate this increasingly competitive industry.
Applicants must demonstrate developed skills and an understanding of their chosen specialism at application, with major and minor roles allocated accordingly.
Term One
Term one begins with the Statement of Intent, which is designed to prepare you for both the Dissertation and the Major Project, and helps you position your work within the wider filmic environment.

This unit combines guest lectures and student-led seminars on your specific discipline or field of practice. You will be encouraged to develop a strong dialogue within your groups and contribute shared and individual creative visions ahead of the Major Project.
Once the term is underway, you will begin the Major Project and undertake a Head of Department role, with a chosen specialism, on a fiction film of a prescribed length (max 30 minutes).
The Major Project provides an opportunity to sharpen your skills in one of six chosen specialisms (identified at application) on an ambitious production that spans the four terms of the course.

The specialism roles are:
Production Designer
Director of Photography
Sound Mixer/ Designer
As a Head of Department, you will further develop team leadership skills, and balance individual and shared creative visions.
Term Two
In term two, the collaborative unit offers students the opportunity to engage in a specific collaboration with a related course at UAL or external partner, or in the form of a work placement.

UAL collaborations could provide opportunities to:
Work with LCC courses MA Documentary Film or MA Television in technical roles on documentary or television formats.
Develop a funding and promotional strategy for the Major Project.
External collaborations could include:
Site-specific experimental work, developed in conjunction with a gallery or public body.
An agreed commission or campaign film for a charitable or commercial organisation.
A work placement in the relevant discipline.
Term Three
In term three, you will also undertake two Secondary Roles on course productions. These roles will enable you to explore associated aspects of your specialism, enhance your skillset and learn what it takes to effectively support a Head of Department.
The Secondary Roles are:
Production Manager
Locations Manager
Casting Director
Assistant Director
Set Dresser/Props
Camera Assistant
Script Supervisor
Sound Recordist/Boom Operator
Term Four
The Dissertation is a significant piece of research-based academic writing, designed to help students locate their work within the wider filmic environment.
Running throughout terms two and three, with a submission in term four, the 10,000 word Dissertation encourages you to reflect on your current practice/s, identify trends in the professional sphere and explore the production process.
In addition to tuition fees you are very likely to incur additional costs such as travel expenses and the cost of materials. We strongly suggest you read the information on our Additional Costs page.
The information outlined is an indicative structure of the course. Whilst we will aim to deliver the course as described on this page, there may be situations where it is desirable or necessary for the University to make changes in course provision, for example because of regulatory requirements or operational efficiencies, before or after enrolment. If this occurs, we will communicate all major changes to all applicants and students who have either applied or enrolled on the course.
Please note that due to staff research agreements or availability, not all of the optional modules listed may be available every year.
In addition, the provision of course options which depend upon the availability of specialist teaching, or on a placement at another institution, cannot be guaranteed. Please check this element of the course with the course team before making a decision to apply.
