Screen design is the art of conceptualising, designing and producing innovative visual communication solutions for moving image. It is a powerful and expressive form of communication with a range of applications: film, television titles, branding themes, advertising commercials, screen displays for theatre, performance, corporate events and launches. It is about developing a dynamic visual vocabulary to explore mood and movement supported by innovative use of sound, music and language.
This course is the first of its kind in the UK devoted to this field and aims to stimulate new thinking in screen design and its uses, create opportunities for its application and nurture your entrepreneurial skills in exploiting the medium.
What will you study?
You will develop effective research, conceptual, design and presentation skills, and experiment in live action shooting, both on location and in the studio. You will explore storyboarding, camera use, lighting and blue-screen techniques, methods of animation, digital editing and effects, rostrum camera use, etc. This will all ultimately be compiled into a dynamic and impressively designed showreel of work.
Your projects will be set and tutored by industry practitioners and visiting guest speakers, and will be complemented by research-based modules that include interdisciplinary research and commercial practice.
