Film and media make up a significant part of people’s everyday life and influence societal development through a unique ability to reach out and communicate to a wide audience. To tell in film and media offers opportunities to operate in a wide range of expressions from the commercial to the artistic, from documentary to fiction. Digital development has made the technology to produce film and media available to many. There are also more and more platforms for film and media: cinema, television, internet, radio, art galleries and public spaces. It is a complex narrative form in which many different artistic expressions such as sounds, images, words, scenery, acting and music together form an experience. Film and media productions are often created in collaboration between artists with their own artistic voices and different crafts and artistic expressions.
The Bachelor's Programme in Film and Media is a first cycle programme for work in film, television and radio and a place for you to begin the development of an artistic expression within the mediated area.
The Bachelor’s Programme in Film and Media specialising in Image – Cinematography, Animation and Production Design
The Bachelor's Programme in Film and Media consists of theory, tool and lab courses. Some courses are common to all five specialisations, others are specialisation-specific. The programme's elective courses give you space to individually shape your education. What recurs throughout the programme is that you as a student seek out your own tone and your own expression.
As a student in the specialisation Image – Cinematography, Animation and Production Design, you dedicate yourself to basic skills so as to be able to work with other teams’ photos, film, news stories for television and short films, work as a camera operator, work in the design department for film/television, work on digital design, work in an animation studio or complete smaller animation projects.
In the courses specific to the specialisation, you intensify your knowledge during the course of the programme in cinematography, animation and production design for different types of film and media. For example, you work on fiction, documentary and art film for different platforms, in different formats and lengths. You get to practice writing scripts, building scenography, managing lighting and various cameras as well as various digital programs for design, animation and image processing. You will work with both submitted material and scripts, as well as with ideas from the common lab courses. In the programme, you will practice working both within a clear framework and more freely. Through analysis, you develop your ability to reflect on your own work and the work of others. A special focus is placed on ethical aspects of storytelling in images in relation to mediated storytelling. During the two last years, you specialise in cinematography, production design or animation.
If you wish to specialise even more, deepen your artistic expression, and prepare to do research, after completing the bachelor's degree specialising in Image – Cinematography, Animation and Production Design, you can apply for the master specialisations Animation, Cinematography, Production Design, Documentary Processes and The Art of Impact.
