  • 2. The Importance of Film Studies
    • It is an in-depth study of one medium and understanding the historical, economic and social contexts that surround it
    • The ability to appreciate films as more than just entertainment
    • Units specifically devised to improve research skills and practical film-making skills
  • 3. What do we do in Film Studies? What do we do not do in Film Studies?
    • We do a close study of a number of diverse films
    • We do not watch the latest blockbuster films on a regular basis
  • 4. What do we do in Film Studies? What do we do not do in Film Studies?
    • We are interested in concept of ‘film stars’ and how they are used to sell a film
    • We do not discuss the latest OK! magazine gossip involving Brangelina
  • 5. What do we do in Film Studies? What do we do not do in Film Studies?
    • We do make 1 film production to show our learning of different film concepts practically
    • We do not spend more than 8 weeks on this practical production. Instead, more of the course is dedicated to film analysis
  • 6. How is the course designed?
    • AS Year:
    • FM1: Exploring Film Form (20%- Coursework)
    • One analysis of how the micro aspects of a chosen extract from a film of candidate's choice produce meanings and responses (1500 words)
    • + One creative project (storyboard or screenplay) based on a film sequence or short film
    • FM2: British and American Film (30%- Exam)
    • Three questions, one from each section:

    • Small classes
    • Specialised teaching
    • Students enjoy it- films chosen that both reflect and challenge their tastes
