Film Studies

UPDATED 20161102 14:56:54

We follow the WJEC Film Studies specification. This is a modular A-Level with AS and A2 exams. Lights, Camera, Learning! This course is essentially about you, the individual. The course explores how films create meanings and provoke both intellectual and emotional responses from spectators. The aesthetic qualities of film are essential to this relationship with the spectator, and the course allows you to appreciate this art form in a variety of new ways. In Year 12, for AS, you will be introduced to a context of modern cinema by understanding its historical context. Additionally you will compare and contrast British and American cinema through contemporary case studies. You will also complete a creative piece of film making as part of your coursework. In Year 13, for A2, the study of cinema widens to include alternative forms of film making, cinema from different countries and the critical study of one film text. The independent research unit allows you to apply your knowledge to a particular area of personal interest. A practical project will arise from this piece of academic work.
