Hi

I am not a Production but a Producing Film and television MA candidate..I have received offer letters from BU and Royal Holloway but cant decide which one to go for.

Royal Holloway has the advantage of being located close to London and having an amicable study environment but after I had a chat with a current student on the program recently, I got a feeling that the program has more of theory portion and less of exercises..like the final assessment is based on a dissertation. Bournemouth appears to have relatively more practical sections and there is a choice of being involved in a production project in the end. I have also received a small fee reduction of 2000 Pounds in the form of scholarship at BU and the cost of stay appears lesser there. Plus I believe BU Producing program is accredited by Creative Skillset.

Any opinions?

Hi,

I just wanted to quickly hop on after reading this and share some opinions on my first year of the BU Film Production course that is based in 'dyer' Salisbury.

First of all the course is built up of a mix of physical and digital film giving you a much wider understanding of filmmaking practices and disciplines. Being able to use both formats is huge for your learning and knowledge of film as it teaches you to be aware of the different aspects of motion picture production and the vast differences in how they are made. In addition to this i can honestly say there is something quite special about working with physical film.
The main thing i felt about this first year was that my money was going to good use. As the cost of university rose i was extremely glad that my £8200 wasnt being spent on 4 lectures a week where i sit in a classroom listening to some bloke speak. You are constantly in workshops, on set and working on productions alongside doing lectures and theoretical work and the lecturers encourage you to seek them out to organise additional workshops during free days etc.

In terms of the town itself i will agree that it isnt party central. Its a medieval city that is only really a city due to the technicality of it having a cathedral, and the nightlife can sometimes leave a lot to be desired. However in its small town set up it gets the great benefit that you get to know everyone. Everyone on the first year knew who eachother was and we all frequently socialised together. Add to this the fact that the second and third years are always around and interested to meet new people. Its a small town with little going on so everyone is eager to meet eachother and go out together. We can fill the relatively small clubs with everyone we know meaning its pretty much 'our club.' We also get to know the DJs and people organising events which leads to a strange family environment.
For me salisbury was the perfect choice because i saw it as offering a great balance between hard work and social life that wasn't the 24/7 partying that average unis provide.

Obviously everyone is entitled to their opinion but ive been here a year, the course is great and fantastic value for your money and the social life is exactly what you make it regardless of if that is going out and getting smashed every night, sitting around with some buddies playing playstation or going to the leisure center and playing football. All of which can be done with additional drink.

Hope to see a new lot of interesting people in september, and good luck with wherever you go.
All The Best,
Michael

Hi

If any of you are still deciding where to go I would highly recommend the Film Production course at The University for the Creative Arts. I have just graduated from the course and loved my time there. What I personally liked about it was it's combination of shooting on film and digital. In first year you get the chance to edit a film by hand using a steenbeck, something not many Universities offer. I loved working with film so much that I shot one of my graduation pieces, a documentary on Savile Row, using film.

If you can't decide between documentary or fiction this course is great as you learn both. I think it's beneficial to keep an open mind anyways. You also learn about all production areas, choosing to specialise for a unit in second year and work as both an individual filmmaker and as a group member, taking on responsibility for a certain production role.

The facilities at Farnham are fantastic teaching you to work with industry standard software such as Avid and learning from those still in the industry. Another aspect that prepares you for the real world is the lack of an actors course on campus. Unlike some Universities where film students make films using actors from the campus, at Farnham you have to advertise on professional sites and run your own auditions usually held in London.

If you want to find out more check out UCA's Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/unicreativearts) or visit the news page of their website (http://www.ucreative.ac.uk/news) where you'll find out the University's reputation. A fact that may be of interest to you is that UCA graduates have gone on to win 4 Oscars and 11 BAFTAS!

If you want to find out more I'd be happy to answer your questions.

Good luck in whatever course you chose,

Rebecca

I've firmed Westminster's TV Production course and am really excited about it, but I'm really that good with computers which I know when it comes to editing and all that is a really big part of the course.
Obviously I know they'll teach me and I'll learn eventually, but when I went to the group interview, there were times people were talking about the different programmes they'll use and file formats and I was just like "what? is that a new band or something"
Will I be at that much of a disadvantage in comparison???
I had the exact same experience at the interview ( which didn't help with me being 2 hrs late due to a problem on the train) I have very little experience and I was so confuessed with all the lingo ... You have just got to think to yourself there were 3.000 applicants for tv and film and tv course and you are one of the lucky ones

I think the interviews may have been exactly the same because I was late too Not quite 2 hours (only about 30 or 40 mins), but I think that might have made it better because everyone was already in deep conversation, so I had to just jump in whenever there was an opening, although it sometimes felt like I was talking to much but both of us must have done something right, because WE GOT IN TO WESTMINSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like this thread is attracting input from uni departments which I always think is suspect.
Lets get some common sense going.

Ravensbourne has just scored the worst score for student satisfaction for any Uni in the Uk so take that on board that's students Ellington it like it is.

Both Bournemouth colleges/ unis are good Bournemouth uni is excellent for telly.
Westminster BA Film and Tv great if you fancy yourself as a film maker can't knock it. Bt they do minimal telly if that's important. That's why they have a BA TV Production which is just that ...telly.

Middlesex great facilities but not as relative a place as Goldsmiths.
These are just my opinions that's all.

Except the Ravensbourne statement which is empirical fact.
All bests
