Film Studies AS and A Level

Film Studies AS and A Level

In this course students will learn how meaning is created in film by the use of cinematography, lighting, framing, mise-en-scene, music, editing, genre and narrative. They will also learn how films are critically recognised culturally and historically, in both the US and Europe, by studying a range of texts over a variety of time periods. Students will have the opportunity to explore creative film-making options, but please note that this is not primarily a practical film-making course.

Entry requirements: Grade 4 in English, Film or Media Studies. There is a substantial essay writing component to this course.

Course assessment: Written examinations and practical coursework.
