BA in Moving Image

Programme profile

During this programme (in Enschede), you will learn to employ moving images cleverly and meaningfully, with a focus on communication through transferring emotions. Moving images are intrinsically powerful and are becoming increasingly important in the international design world. You will explore and examine your ‘own reality’ of moving images and all the facets of their impact on both our consciousness and sub-consciousness. You will create films and other moving images and will receive broad theoretical and philosophical training.

Programme content

First year:
Through practice-oriented assignments you will hone your skills in image and film design and technique. You will increasingly develop your own style in your creations. The theory courses will introduce you to the history of art and design as well as the history of cinema. You will also work on projects: every year, there are two major Moving Image practical assignments.

Second year:
You will learn how to write and work with screenplays in the second year and will deepen your knowledge of various design software as well as become familiar with sound design. Of course throughout this year, you will continue to work on the development of your own style. The theory courses will increasingly focus on moving images specifically. For example, you will learn more about the techniques involved in image editing and will focus on the philosophy behind moving images. You will also continue to work on producing your own Moving Image projects.

Third year:
Your own graduation project is the primary focus of this year. You will have fewer regular classroom lessons as you will have mastered a good many practical skills by this time, but instead, and with your graduation in mind, you will receive a great deal of individual guidance. You will also work on your own thesis and become acquainted with ‘Lenses/Networks’, a system that puts you in contact with the professional field and possible follow-up study programmes.
