At Middlesex, we offer a unique degree experience in Film, not only because the course is designed to be flexible, accommodating very different kinds of film students, but also because it encourages, indeed requires, collaboration between students with different interests, skills, and knowledge, which is great preparation for working professionally in the film industry. If you want to be part of a great community of people striving to be the best and to develop your passion for film, come to Middlesex.
After your first year, you can follow pathways in producing, directing, editing, sound, cinematography, art direction or scriptwriting, or you may prefer not to identify yourself closely with any of the pathways but rather use BA Film as a means of gaining an excellent all-round education in the theory and practice of film. In your final year, you will choose your own final project, meaning you can write and direct your own film as part of the degree if you wish.
Our students are successful. Graduates of this course have gone on to a wide range of careers, including writers, editors, sound technicians, directors of photography, camera assistants, directors and designers. Some have gone on to work at major institutions such as the BBC, while others have set up their own small businesses, attracting both commercial work and funded commissions. Some have become music video producers and others are freelancers representing a range of special professions within production and post-production.
We help you to establish yourself in the industry in all kinds of ways, including supporting your submission of work to film festivals (some of our students' work has been screened at Cannes) and supporting your writing, whether critical journalism or screenwriting.
There are an array of jobs in the industry, from production, post-production, distribution and exhibition, and many entry points.
