What to include in your portfolio
As there are many creative avenues you can take on this project-based degree, we don’t prescribe an ‘ideal’ portfolio. We expect applicants to come from many different backgrounds. Indeed we consider that is a strength of the course.
But to point you in the right direction, your application portfolio should provide evidence of the breadth and depth of your experiences to date in film/TV/new media. Some examples of portfolio work could be:
- Documentary film
- Fiction film
- TV production – documentary, magazine programs, multi-camera drama
- Websites – particularly non-linear (hypertext) stories
- Audio projects
- Still photography
- Scripts – either fiction or non-fiction
- Filmed Adverts
- Supporting production files explaining your creative approach/activity, and your working methods
You may also include written research papers such as an UG dissertation.
