DFTV not only offers you a chance to learn all the skills required to work in the film industry, but it also gives you a new level of creative thinking.
More about Emma
“My main reason for coming to NTU was that it had the perfect course for me. Design for Film and Television (DFTV) isn’t a course offered at many universities and the reputation that NTU has for getting work placements and sending students out into industry seemed amazing.
“I really like how at the end of each project you feel as if you have learned and achieved something. We learn so many skills including technical draughting, drawing and model making. The tutors on the course are all really great, especially as they all have experience and knowledge from working in the film and television industry.
“In the space of two years, I have been on about 10 placements and have learnt something new and exciting each time. Whether I’ve been helping dress sets, make props or assist with art directing, it has always been great to get a feel of what working in the industry is going to be like in the future.
“Nottingham has so much going on at a university level and the city itself. Joining a sports team was one of the best decisions I’ve made as not only does it give you a secondary level of friends but it also really makes you feel a valued part of NTU as a whole.
“DFTV not only offers you a chance to learn all the skills required to work in the film industry, but it also gives you a new level of creative thinking. Most importantly, you can also experience working in an art department first hand, something I find really exciting as it makes the course a whole lot more real.”
