The Met Film School is London's leading provider of practical filmmaking courses, based in Ealing Studios.
We offer 5 different MA programmes in
MA in Directing
MA in Screenwriting
MA in Business & Producing
MA in Postproduction
MA in Cinematography
The programme is led by experienced filmmaking practitioners, including directors, writers, producers, editors, and post-production picture and sound specialists, and consists of a series of modules dedicated to each pathway. Each student on the programme will complete a portfolio of filmmaking projects, plus a final Masters research or production project.
Unique to the programme is an induction lab across all four awards where directors, screenwriters, producers and post-production students will be immersed in filmmaking practice and moving image theory as a conceptual bedrock for shared knowledge and filmmaking practice. Additionally, there will be designated points during the year where students will be expected to work together across each award in the production of a collaborative, filmed project.
The course is divided into six 20-credit modules within each of the four awards, followed by a 60-credit module for the final Masters Project. Across the six modules each student will attend a series of lectures, screenings, seminars, practice-based exercises and workshops, as well as work independently to produce projects for their portfolio, demonstrating craft and creativity to an advanced degree. In addition, students will be required to conduct academic research within their chosen pathway as the basis for critical and reflective written work that links to their filmmaking practice. Students will also receive individual tutorial and mentoring support throughout the year.
The projects you create will contribute to your showreel and professional CV, demonstrating your individual voice as an advanced-level film practitioner. Students who successfully complete the first three modules of the programme will be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate of Education. Students who successfully complete the first six modules of the programme will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Filmmaking. All students must successfully complete the first six modules to continue on to the final phase of the programme: the Masters research or production project. Those who complete all seven modules successfully will be awarded the MA in Filmmaking.
