Authorship and creativity draws on skills and methods used in previous courses, in particular Documentary and Factual Entertainment, Cinematic Language, Story and Style and FTR3000 Project A. The notion of media author, modelled on literary and art history, underlines the production, marketing and reception of films. Despite important theoretical challenges, authorship has endured as a significant and powerful notion both in the film industry and in film studies. This course charts the historical development of the notion of authorship in documentary storytelling, through exploration of cinematic style within different theoretical and creative practices and cultural contexts.
This course provides an opportunity to expand on the content and form of media theory and production, form and style. It requires students to build on knowledge and skills acquired in FTR1003 Cinematic Language, FTR2006 Documentary and Factual Entertainment, FTR3002 Story and Style and FTR3000 Media Business. This course has been designed to allow students to explore individual director's story, style, form and interactivity. while preparing for higher degree research. Students will use this course to undertake structured independent learning under the guidance of a supervisor.
