Self Directed Creative Project: Filmmaking (806P4)

60 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

All year

The self-directed project is an independent study module leading to the completion of an autonomous project. The module offers you the chance to work either independently on your own initiative, or together within a collaborative group, with guidance of a project supervisor.

Your project culminates in a final degree show. In preparation for this show, you are expected to demonstrate how your ideas and knowledge have developed over the entire year and reflect on this process in the associated written practice critique. For this reason you are required to continue with the journal started in the course Research and Development for Creative Practice, charting your developing ideas, images, methods and research. Information from this journal will be combined with the reflective research report written in your first term to culminate in a final written critique.
