The degree programme is directed towards budding filmmakers who have mastered the basics of their profession and who wish to continue their education in newly emerging professional fields that use innovative audio-visual formats. The programme offers an ideal framework for animation filmmakers to develop their own visual vocabulary and style or – as all-rounders in new filmic forms – to prepare themselves for the challenges in filmmaking and media design that the future has in store. Animation filmmakers and filmmakers with cross-platform skills will be creating the films of the future.
The three specialisations of the master programme have in common that they teach students visual storytelling techniques that are mostly fragmentary and associative, often experimental, even when their function is documentary or informational. Students in the Master Film programme learn the basics of all three specialisations. But they decide themselves which aspects they want to pursue in depth and develop for their practical and theoretical Master Project.
