BA (Hons) Film and Television Production

To make video content that captivates your audience, you need to master a range of technical production processes. Throughout your time with us you will learn and perfect skills in:

  • Finding stories, both fictional and fact
  • Planning and creating visual storyboards
  • Scriptwriting
  • Shooting raw footage using different cameras and sound equipment
  • Editing footage and audio files
  • Postproduction techniques

Alongside this practical work you will also learn about key theories and debates in media production. This knowledge will help you blend theory with practice to create better content.

Investigate how you can ensure your production makes an impact by using social media, blogs and apps to promote your work. You will have the chance to explore the different roles in film and TV production by engaging in different group projects. In your 3rd year, you will be able to specialise in an area that interests you most.

You will have access to our dedicated TV studios, specialist software and editing suites. We also have cameras and sound equipment for location recording that you can use. We will give you all the equipment you need to tell your stories.

York is a living film set, and the perfect place to develop as a media producer. It is the UK’s only UNESCO City of Media Arts. Our partnership with the BAFTA-qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival will give you further access to expert masterclasses and networking events.
