Description of module content:

On this module you will have the opportunity to develop, plan and undertake a substantial and coherent factual or fiction film project that is resolved to high creative, technical and presentational levels. The film productions created during this module will build upon the research and development undertaken during Final Year Project Research (LMD10101). Working collaboratively with your peers, you will develop your technical and aesthetic understanding of film production, and the synergies that exist between technical operation and creative selection.
To creatively collaborate in the pre-production, production and post-production of these films, you will work in individual Head of Department roles in the areas of producing, directing, writing, production design, cinematography, sound design and/or editing.
You will also work in recognised roles within film department teams, applying appropriate professional practices across your own and other’s main film productions.
All roles will be supported and informed by an understanding of relevant technical, critical, aesthetic and cultural debate and practices, and you will evidence this in a journal and production dossier, as well as a final written critical contextualisation report.

Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
This module enables you to develop a strand of your creative practice to an advanced, resolved level. This is achieved through negotiating and planning your own creative brief, both in writing and verbally, and, through research, reflection and experimentation, developing concepts, methodologies, techniques and processes which will enable you to progress this to a successful resolution (LO 3, 6). An advanced level of critical analysis, evaluation and reflection (LO 1) as well as an in-depth knowledge of your specialist medium (LO 2, 4), subject and context is required and the LTA is designed to provide support for this. This is provided by individual and group tutorials, group critiques and presentations which encourage the development of work, ability to articulate ideas, and self reflective practice and provide tutor feedback and peer group support. Lectures by visiting professionals and visits to outside organisations introduce students to a range of practice and critical thinking. You will work both independently and in groups to promote skills of self reliance and collaborative teamwork (LO 5).

Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
The Final Year Project module provides you with an opportunity to develop and resolve an advanced level of practice in which knowledge, skills and attributes introduced and developed throughout the programme are interlinked in a complex and dynamic practice. The knowledge, skills and attributes employed in your practice are also central to employability: creativity, self motivation and flexibility; self awareness and reflection, allowing you to evaluate your own learning, performance and achievements; the development of an individual practice which suits your interests and aspirations; the effective use of key intellectual, specialist and transferable skills; and a knowledge of the professional requirements of your chosen specialism.
