NUA [MA] Moving Image and Sound

Self Negotiated Unit

SNU - Copy

SNU stands for Self-Negotiated Unit. The unit “encourages you to critique key aspects of the creation and perception of sound in relation to moving images, and aims to provide you with hands-on conceptual and technical skills relevant to the creation of original audio-visual work.” The unit is worth 30 credits towards my Masters degree.

We will develop and submit a critical evaluation that contextualises our current work and its potential outcomes. This will be supported by a body of practical work and related research files which demonstrates both the research and development of ideas along with the finished outcomes.
