Master's programme in Film and Video Production

Film and Video Production

Audio-visual media represent a fascinating potential for expression. The master's programme in Film and Video Production is a practical-theoretical programme of study aimed at students who wish to work with filmic devices.

The master's programme in Film and Video Production builds on the bachelor's programme in Film and Video Production, but involves a deeper and more specialized study within the subject area.

The course of study aims to deepen the students' knowledge of the subject area through increasing specialization. Emphasis is placed on independent work under guidance of academic supervisors.

The programme of study provides insight into essential prerequisites for audiovisual media, as well as how technological development induces new expressions and offer arenas for interaction and display.

The master's degree is assessed by both examination and thesis. Therefore, the programme has two main components:

  • One joint component comprised of a combination of compulsory and optional theory- and methodology courses. Its' theoretic components are linked to the areas of film studies. The practical components of the programme rest on and further develop the students' practical experience, and culminate in a final exam production. This component, including Experts in team, provides a total of 60 credits.
  • One master's thesis, which is a written report of a piece of independent scholarly work. This component provides a total of 60 credits. Work with the thesis takes place under the guidance of an academic supervisor.

The master's thesis is bisected, and consists of a minor theoretical piece of work, as well as a practical media production. The intended purpose behind the theoretical part of the thesis is to show that the candidate can work independently within the subject area. The practical production aims to demonstrate the candidate's proficiency in completing a comprehensice film and video production.
