Film…time runs through it
The OCA is now well advanced in agreeing our development plans for the next academic year. In line with our values, the vast majority of the investment will be devoted to enhancing the student experience, refreshing existing courses and adding further choice to our existing degree pathways. However we are very excited to announce plans for a new addition: Film.
We already have two level one film courses hidden within our existing degree pathways:
Digital film Production: Creative Concepts which is an option within the photography degree pathway, and
Scriptwriting which was introduced this academic year, is an option within the creative writing degree pathway.
In January 2015, subject to validation, we will introduce a third level one course, in Film Studies. This will enable students wishing to study film to gain a CertHE in Creative Arts by studying solely in this area. If there is sufficient interest we will submit plans for degree pathways in film when we re-validate with UCA in 2015.
In the meantime, we start this week with a post on that aspect of film which is perhaps closest to photography, the long take.
