Learning and Teaching
The course offers a varied and engaging schedule of study including academic lectures, practical instruction, seminars, and masterclasses with working cinematographers. Guest speakers will introduce and contextualise work. You will also have the chance to attend field trips to camera rental houses, production facilities and laboratories.
You will be encouraged to attend film festivals to gain unique perspectives on industry practice. Screenings and discussions will enable students to analyse and critique a range of film and moving image work and the practice of classic and contemporary cinematographers.
Throughout the course, you will undertake both group and individual project work supported by tutorials, mentoring, workshops and independent study. Part of your final assessment will be based on the production of a body of cinematic work.
You will have access to all relevant teaching and learning materials via Blackboard, UWE's online learning portal, as well as Lynda.com and the university's extensive online library resources.

Offered as a full-time course, contact time averages at 18 hours a week, although this will vary widely depending on the module and focus of study. For instance, there will be some full weeks of teaching activities and other weeks where contact time is limited to three hours of project supervision.
Over the course of the year, you will be expected to carry out a significant degree of independent study, attending relevant screenings and events and undertake substantial cinematography practice.
We will make use of a variety of assessment tools throughout the course, including essays, reflective diaries, presentations, portfolios, coursework and a professional practice report.
