Dr Paul Moody
Senior Lecturer in Media and Communications
Paul's teaching experience includes a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses across the film and media disciplines, including modules which focus on digital media practice.
He is the module leader for CO1600 Media Production I: Non-Fiction, in which students analyse and produce a range of digital media, including video essays and short documentary films. He also leads CO2601 Media Production II: Fiction, in which students are introduced to screenwriting and the production of a short fiction film.
Paul also teaches on SO1700 Making Sense of Culture and Society: Issues I, in which his lectures focus on disruptive emerging digital media, including the phenomenon of the 'deepfake' and the ethics of online privacy. In additon to this, he has established several extra-curricular projects that involved students working with media industry figures on funded short films and pioneered the development of an online interactive module for undergraduates on the principles of fiction filmmaking.
Paul supervises dissertation students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, and was part of the project team which led the development of a new practice pathway on the MSc Media and Communications, launching in 2022.
