An insight into the film, television and theatre industries: present and potential futures

Outline

Studying a unit or course which has to explore current industry debates, ideas, principles and practices?

Joining Head of Department and freelance theatre director Dr Robert Marsden will be Associate Professors Fiona Graham (BBC, History Channel, Sky) and Peter Rudge (Universal, Columbia Pictures) from Film and Media, to give an insight into current film, television, and theatre industries.

By the end of the session, it is hoped that our panel of experts, who are also working professionals, will give an informed insight into current practices, as well as inspiring and provoking students to think about how they may change these practices if they wish to go into the creative industries.

Topics include:

  • Getting things made – is there a ‘closed door’?
  • Generating your own work
  • Creating work in a pandemic
  • Casting

The discussion will also be informed by how equality and diversity movements such as Me Too, Black Lives Matter, and We Shall Not be Removed are rapidly changing the landscape of how the industries operate. From casting to equal pay and working conditions, and right up to how the Oscars will operate, students will see how change is flattening historical and current hierarchies.
