Essex’s Film Studies combines studying the history and theory of cinema with practical film production, so students critically examine cinema and create it. The production modules enable students to develop and apply their academic knowledge and understanding of film, refining and enriching their own practical work. Students will explore film across a broad range of genres, time periods, and regions, from Hollywood, world and independent cinema, to documentaries and television. Simultaneously, students will gain hands-on experience in film production and production management, essential for careers in the film and television industry. Students will be equipped with key skills in writing close analysis, critical thinking, contextual research, time management, and hands-on filmmaking. The short film students will make as part of their studies serves as calling cards, showcasing their individual, creative potential to add to a portfolio of practical work developed during their course.
