Grow Your Greatness With Our New Creative Production Film MA

Find out why our innovative Creative Production MA Degree in Film could be the next big step in your filmmaking career. 

What’s your goal in filmmaking? It could be delving deep into a speciality or finally completing the big project on your to-do list. As someone who’s studied filmmaking, or has already worked in the industry, you’ve likely had ample time behind the camera, on-set or developing stories. It’s time to ask yourself what’s holding you back from taking that step further to turn your creative concept into reality.

With as many possibilities as there are potential obstacles in a saturated scene, the filmmaking profession can be a challenge to navigate. Perhaps you’re lacking solid foundations in your desired specialisation, or you just need a supportive environment in which to develop it. You could be sitting on a killer script that you’re dying to finish, or on the cusp of launching a film business.

If you ask us, creativity is never not an option. If it’s expert mentorship, dedicated time, pro equipment, keen collaborators, or clarity of thought you need to achieve your ambitions, you’ll find it in our Creative Production Masters Degree in Film.

Launching in September 2020, our innovative film MA is your chance to launch your filmmaking career on an exciting new trajectory. This is your time to experiment, refine and develop your craft practically, theoretically, and with total creative autonomy. Like an educational sandbox, the programme is powered by self-directed learning. Set your own goals, define the outcome you want to achieve and map out the next steps in your creative career.

You could be a director, cinematographer, editor, writer, producer, sound designer, audiovisual artist, entrepreneur, or all-round filmmaker and storyteller. Masters students will have access to filming equipment, a professional film studio with green screen and visual effects setup, post production suites and the technical support needed to develop ideas and theory into practice. Your project can focus on any topic or filmmaking technique – from a feature film or web series production, to a screenplay development, a visual arts installation or a VR multimedia piece.

What’s more, you’ll collaborate with film, acting and music degree students from over 59 countries, all from our historic Funkhaus location in the artists’ hub that is Berlin. Whether you take the hyper-flexible course for one year full-time or two years part-time is up to you.
