Film and Television students from New College Lanarkshire are hosting a special screening in Glasgow to showcase their latest work.
Students studying on HNC and HND Film and Television courses at the College’s Cumbernauld Campus will present their work to friends, family, tutors and industry professionals at the Centre of Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Glasgow on Monday 9th December from 7-11pm.
‘NCL Short Cuts’ will showcase the work of 50 students - HNC students will present Film Noir trailers as well as a short horror films, while HND students will present short documentaries, all of which have been created in the first three months of their studies.
The screening celebrates a new method of delivery for the course in semester one, offering students an entire month of production - a move to enhance practical skills and confidence.
Alan Moffat, Film and Television Lecturer at New College Lanarkshire, said: “We looked at a different model this academic year for curriculum delivery and this involved bringing forward a more project based focus to the first semester.
“The main idea behind this was to get the students working in groups before embarking on their Graded Unit and for them to learn through practice.
“The challenges have been around the areas of collaboration and being able to compromise and as a creative department, we feel it is imperative that students strive to achieve these essential skills.”
Charlie Johnstone, Curriculum and Quality Leader for Film, TV & Radio at New College Lanarkshire, said: “It is a fantastic achievement for our students to be showcasing their work at a prestigious creative arts venue like the CCA.
“Both students and lecturers have been working hard the past few months to ensure the work is of a high standard and I am sure those in attendance will be very impressed by the creativity and skills on show.”
‘NCL Short Cuts’ will take place on Monday 9th December at the Centre for Contemporary Arts, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3JD from 7-11pm. Entry is free and open to the public.
