Making Movies 1 introduces students with little or no background in movie making to the fundamentals of filmmaking from the professional filmmaker’s perspective. The subject analyses the role of the key ‘behind the scenes’ creatives: film director, writer, producer, actor, production designer, editor and sound designer, to provide an insight into professional film making practice.

The subject also analyses key creative and practical skills such as application of genre, screenwriting, directing, cinematography, film editing & audio post-production, actor direction, production aesthetics, and film crew organisation.

Delivery is through lectures that include a wide range of film material, presented by professional film practitioners and some applied exercises. Assessments apply the knowledge gained in the lectures, including the application of the grammar of screen language to the analysis of a film project, through image-based story-telling, and a directors vision of an original filmic idea.

Intended learning outcomes

  • identify the key creative roles in film production;
  • identify the creative skills and processes that are required within these roles to make a film;
  • apply the grammar of screen language when analysing a film project;
  • apply filmic techniques to the expression of screen-based ideas;
  • critically analyse the application of filmmaking techniques and creative aesthetics to screen-based narratives.
