If you have a passion for watching films and are interested in developing a deeper knowledge and understanding of the world of film, then you should consider this course. Film Studies A level provides a framework for the systematic study of a wide range of films as well as providing opportunities for creative practical work-a central part of film study. It offers the opportunity to explore a range of important ideas and emotions, reflect on art and technology and connect theory and creative practice in ways which are designed to provide an absorbing and motivating educational experience.
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. 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.
Where does A Level Film Studies lead?
More than half of A Level Film students usually progress to directly relevant HE courses, with most others progressing to HE courses in wider creative arts/humanities areas. A number of our former Film students are now working in the film and TV industry.
