The course is taught at Kingston School of Art (the new name from September 2017), one of the leading art and design institutions in Europe. Our teaching is guided by two principles: that our students learn by the process of making; and that students are critical practitioners who contribute to the development of the subject areas.
Many of the staff in the Faculty are current practitioners and have extensive experience and professional links, helping you to develop your skills, networks and gain access to industry contacts.
Phillip Warnell is an artist filmmaker, working primarily in the area of experimental documentary films accompanied by associated publications. His previous output has also involved the use of other media and art forms: including performance and mediated performance, video work and photographic/installation pieces.
Phillip is supported by a number of experienced filmmakers from the Department of Film and Photography, many of whom teach for one or two days per week and are in practice the remainder of their time. This keeps teaching current and relevant. Film staff are highly research-active, with significant national and international profiles within cinema, expanded cinema, experimental film and genre-based narrative work. He is also supported by highly qualified staff from the wider Faculty, notably from the Department of Critical and Historical Studies.
