Film & TV Production BA (Hons)

Film and Television Production BA (Hons)

An imaginative concern for film and television, that’s what we are about. Through a combination of practical work and theoretical and critical studies we aim to help students become creative and intelligent makers of film and TV.  We don’t want our students to fit in a box – it’s all about facilitating their creativity. What we are looking for is passion, commitment and enthusiasm.  

You can study our Film & Television Production programme as a Specialist degree.

Staff and students share a research ethos which is about consistently developing as a reflective practitioner. Much of our research examines the relationship between theory and practice and that research is often practice-led.  We are engaged in intellectually challenging and diverse research in film, documentary and screenwriting covering subjects from Asian cinema to regional TV documentary.

  Our students regularly enter their work for regional and national competitions and work on joint ventures with York’s independent cinemas.  Student work has won significant awards and our graduates can be found in Yorkshire Television, BBC TV, ITN, Granada, Screen Yorkshire, the BFI, Aardman Animation, Century Films, Channel 5, Sky Digital, Sky News, amongst many others.  

We bring the outside in and take your work outside the campus. Industry practitioners are regular visitors, often to work with you on projects. Recent guests have included Mark Herman, Ian Bevitt Nicky Ball and Pete Harness. Mark Herman helps with script development and editing for our third year students. We enjoy a close link with the RTS, Screen Yorkshire and independent cinemas.
