Course description

Architecture and the Edit:

Capturing the city through a lens is something that has defined cinema and photography since their conception.

This course will explore this medium, and is an ideal way for students, professionals and enthusiasts to better understand the architectural world around them.

The cityscape can provide a backdrop for a narrative whilst also establishing tone, texture and emotion to a piece of work - either directly or indirectly.

Nottingham and the East Midlands have provided memorable architectural backdrops for work such as ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’ (1960), ‘Control’ (2007) and, most memorably, the work of local director Shane Meadows.

On this course you will explore locations and document the environments through photography and the moving image.

The course will involve the use of simple, free editing tools (readily available on the PC and Mac) to look at different film techniques and approaches to cinematography.

During this course you will:

  • engage in creative design in contexts that go beyond building construction, demonstrating your understanding of cultural space;
  • explore different ways of working to broaden your understanding of architecture;
  • demonstrate appropriate creative decision-making;
  • work effectively both individually and through collaborative teamwork in communicating ideas via visual, oral and written means; and
  • critically appraise your own working practices.

What will you gain?

This course will introduce you to the ideas of architecture in film as a narrative device and scene setter while also developing ideas and methods towards creating original material, inspired by the variety of environments within the city of Nottingham.
