Do you love film, television, and animation, and want to find out more about how to use a camera to create and edit videos, or generally have an interest in entertaining media; the Media and Animation Diploma Level 2 course is your first step in a career within the media sector.

The diploma is coursework based, meaning there are no exams as part of the media course. It’s all about giving you the practical skills and experience behind the camera, in a project management role to lead a production.

You’ll learn about and put to good use a selection of professional equipment; Canon and Nikon DSLRs with a range of lenses, Sony and Panasonic Camcorders, GoPro, Tascam and Zoom recorders, Shot-gun, lapel, phantom powered microphones; accessories – shoulder mounts, Camera-cranes, Dolly and Track, DJI Ronin-s motorised 3 axis gimbal, 1, 2 and 3 point lighting systems for indoor studio and outdoor use.

You’ll take full advantage of the Television and sound studio with a permanent microphone, mixing desk and dedicated PC, and a Green-Screen with dedicated space.

In post you’ll use Adobe Creative Suite, including Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Animate, After effects, Illustrator, InDesign, Light room etc.

As well as using all this industry-standard equipment as part of your studies, you’ll also be part of visiting lectures who will speak about their experiences and how to get into the industry yourself. There are several free media trips each year to local events and competitions which will play a huge part in developing your understanding of routes into the creative sector.

As a Level 2 course, this diploma is all about introducing you to the Media industry and developing your essential skills to progress onto the level 3 media or games design courses specifically, and from there, on to employment or university. You’ll be learning from experienced practicing media professionals, who are here to give you the very best start to your career.

  What You Will Learn

This one year course introduces you to media skills and processes used in the industry today.

You’ll learn about manual camera operation and composition, professional sound recording, creative software use, professional pre-production, structuring video content, editing techniques etc. By developing these skills at level 2, you will be well prepared to enter into more specialised study in further qualifications.

  Entry Requirements

4 GCSEs at Grade 3 or above.

  Work Experience

As part of your course you will be required to carry out Work Experience and/or an Industry Placement.

We 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 at the end of each project submitted via online portfolio of project work. This will include written work, planning, a main production e.g a video and your reflections upon your work. Upon complete submission you will be given a feedback sheet detailing the project outcomes and your grade for that piece of work.

  Progression

Once you have finished the Media level 2 course, you will have a real understanding of introductory media skills and processes, and you will be ready to progress onto more advanced Media level 3 or Games Design Level 3 study.

Alice’s fashion designs have been seen on celebrities such as Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton and Jessie J, she also collaborates with some major manufacturers including Care Bears, My Little Pony and Hello Kitty.

“I knew I wanted to be a fashion designer and the course at Camborne covered lots of different disciplines, which was great as it gave me a wonderful overview of all the various paths open to me and I particularly remember enjoying life drawing. From there I was accepted by The University of Plymouth to study fashion design and on completion of my degree I then moved back to Cornwall and got a job at a high-end fashion boutique, which introduced me to the spectrum of fashion.

My goal was to have my designs on the catwalk at the Clothes Show, so I worked hard, researched a lot, got signed by a portfolio agency and was then contacted by the stylist who wanted me to be involved in the designs for the opening sequence to the show. From there I received work from the X-Factor, Got to Dance and worked with Vogue on a Range Rover launch. "
