Edinburgh College of Art (Film/TV)




Edinburgh College of Art has an international reputation as one of the most successful independent art colleges in the UK. We have won that reputation by offering the highest quality of experience for our students, and by providing a learning environment, which is both supportive and challenging. eca is known for its creativity, its co-operative atmosphere and its people; one recent graduate described the College as 'an ideas factory'.

The moving image, in film and television, is an integral part of the modern world. It is a source of information and entertainment, the product of a rich and complex range of aesthetic and technical activities. The teaching programme at eca does not focus on any single element of the medium. Instead, it offers you the widest opportunities to work in formats ranging from the established, such as documentary, drama, music video and commercials, to forms such as fine art video and experimental film which seek to define their own creative agenda. The programme is firmly founded on the concept that film, television and video are essentially about communication. You are encouraged to define for yourself what it is that you want to say, to whom you want to say it, and the most effective way of doing so.

The programme provides a broad spectrum of practical experience, but it is firmly focused on education: training is a secondary aim. Many students become very accomplished technically, but this is valued only to the extent that it assists the creative process.

The learning process is project-based, with guidance which allows you to discover your own sense of direction and to emerge with a showreel or portfolio which clearly shows your potential. Within the project structure, collaborative working is encouraged and you generally work across year divisions so that second, third, fourth year and postgraduate students may be involved in a single production, adding richness and cross-fertilisation to the learning process.
