Short Film Project

In this student-led module, students opt to either work one their own, or in a group to create an original short film with guidance from the module tutor. The student will be responsible for all aspects of the filming and will be able to call upon the student actors to take part in their project.

Theatre Tour Project
New Company Project
Work Placement Project
Theatre Design Project

In this student-led module, students will work independently to create the designs for a theatre production. The design elements will include costume, set, and lights. Firstly, the student will outline the directorial vision of the project, working from a text of their choosing. Alternatively, the student may choose to work with a director, who will provide the vision and criteria that the student must work towards. Whichever path they chose, they will then have to create a design that fits the vision for the production, for a specified venue or a proposed tour.

Playscript/Screenplay/Radioplay Project

The focus of the module will be the development and employment of techniques enabling students to create an independent piece of writing for the stage, screen or radio.
