Discovery Media Studies Study Day


This year we will once again offer a day of behind-the-scenes access in the film industry, and are planning a day of film-related activity for students currently studying film and/or media at upper secondary level.

We will build the day around two film screenings, specially chosen for their relevance to some of the key issues affecting the film industry.

 Exact content is still being negotiated, dependent as we are on industry figures with their ever-changing diary demands. As we speak we are working on a look at film adaptations of comic books, with a screening of an American feature animation developed from original comic book content, introduced by specialists in the field of comic studies. Later in the day we hope to offer a special preview screening
of a Scottish-made Christmas-themed zombie musical… and welcome some of the production team to introduce their film and then take part in a post-screening Q&A.
