Assessment for Year 1

You’ll be assessed via both individual assignments and group projects. Your production modules will have an emphasis on creative practice assignments, and you’ll hone your skills of critical analysis in your modules on the history and theory of film and television. You’ll have the option in some theoretical modules to be assessed through creative practice: you might be required to produce a script of your own to explore questions of film history. All your assessments will help strengthen your creative and critical thinking and give you skills that are attractive to future employers.
