What you will learn

This course gives you the required media skills and experience to work in the industry. You’ll learn about manual camera operation and composition, professional sound recording, script-writing, journalism, film production, editing techniques, creative software and lots more including our two week intensive nationally recognised film making machine, Film School.

Entry requirements

You’ll have four grade C/4 qualifications, one of which is in English or maths. You’ll be ready to discuss your specific media interests at interview stage and you should bring with you an example of work.

Work experience

You’ll complete work experience and industry placements during the course and these could include working with production companies locally, creating new content for local business – video, print, and animation. This is outside the classroom, in a real working environment. Begin thinking about what you might like to do, and think about how you will get there.

We also work in partnership with Cultivator to support local creative businesses which will enable you to network and ensure liaisons with professionals which will provide growth to your own practise and possible future employment.

Assessment

You will be assessed in a range of developmental projects throughout the year, with feedback from staff identifying your strengths to develop and skills to improve. Once those formative modules are complete, you will design, pitch and create your own final project that will determine your mark for the entire year of work.

This will be graded at either a PASS, MERIT or DISTICTION, and these can take any form; from music video, magazine, short film, documentary, animation, photographic exhibition…anything that demonstrates your skills and learning!

Progression

Employment in the industry such as camera operator, DOP, producer, director, production runner, journalist, animator, video editor, sound designer and much more.

University study on courses such as Media production, Broadcasting, Film production, Media Marketing and Journalism at other local and national universities.
