A Level Film Studies will appeal to people who are not only interested in watching films, but also in analysing them. You will learn more about the film industry and even develop your own film-related practical skills.
The subject is wide-ranging in content and draws on many different contexts relating to films themselves, the industry and those who consume film-related products.
A Level Film Studies facilities
Film Studies lessons are taught in a dedicated classroom, or in our computer room, where PCs are installed with relevant software for completion of practical coursework. The latest Adobe suite includes video editing software such as Premiere and After-Effects, as well as Photoshop for the manipulation of still shots. Film screenings also take place in our Viewing Room, which reproduces the feel of a small cinema. In addition, students can print and scan work in high quality, as well as borrow a wide range of cameras, tripods, dollies, and other equipment from the department. Students can also access loan copies of the films studied, as well as a wide range of other materials.
