During this Build your own MA (BYOMA) short course you will individually conceive and develop a short film intended for festival entry or for distribution via mobile phones or the web, whether it is a viral advert or a showcase for your talents on YouTube. The short film will be progressed up to, but not including, production.
You will be encouraged to work collaboratively with writers in creating a script and will be taught via online individual tutorials and seminars. At the creative retreat you will get to meet other film makers and develop your ideas in a supportive and collaborative creative environment. Short films provide an ideal chance to showcase your talents.
There has never been a better opportunity to get your work seen as short films are ideally suited to the new media platforms such as mobile phones and the web. With the reputation of a Bournemouth University course behind you, your work will be taken seriously by the industry.
This course will enable you to develop a short film destined for digital platforms. You will work online within a collaborative framework that supports and prepares you in the processes necessary for continued and successful work in your chosen form. The precise nature of the output will be negotiated between you and your tutor to advance the work in a form that is appropriate for the type of artefact to be produced.
