Course Description

What you will study You will study camerawork, video editing and screenwriting as well as how to apply these skills to a wide range of media formats. You will develop an understanding of the media industries and how they operate as well as the requirements for gaining a job within specific areas of the media. This will help you to develop skills in: - How to capture your ideas and turn them into reality - Presenting your work to an audience - How to interact with people who help develop your work - Working to a commissioned brief for a real business - Reflecting on your work and assessing its successes and areas for improvement - Investigation of historical and contemporary contexts in the creative and media arts You will also work on a range of live client briefs, helping you to develop a strong portfolio and industry relevant experience. Maths and English are key elements of any full-time programme of study in College. If you do not already have a GCSE at grade A*-C in these subjects, you will need to attend sessions allocated on your timetable. These are varied and designed to cater for all ability levels. You will receive advice and guidance regarding the correct level for you. Skills in Maths and English will support your full-time course, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, managing your own finances and interpretation of data, to mention just a few. They will also help you in the future. Most employers are looking for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C. This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study. Your Course Structure This is a creative design course which is mostly practical, with some artistic, research and theoretical content. This also includes day visits and an international residential trip. You will meet regularly with a Personal Tutor who will support your studies throughout the course and in Year 2 you will receive guidance on applying to higher education or employment. How you will learn You will be taught through workshop-based sessions that encourage hands on experience of industry standard software and techniques. The software used will include Adobe Premier, Photoshop and After Effects. You will learn through working on live briefs and real-life situations. The College works in partnership with businesses and organisations to plan and provide creative and inventive activities so you can apply your knowledge and skills in a realistic context that cannot be replicated in the classroom. As part of the course you will have the opportunity to produce documentaries for a range of live clients, enter national and international competitions, develop your own ideas for films and music videos, produce special effects and animations for TV and films, design film posters and packaging, and learn from experienced industry professionals from film, photography and TV. Trips and visits are also an important element of this course. Trips may include the London Film Festival, various television studios, the National Media Museum in Bradford and other relevant film festivals and events. Students will also have the opportunity to attend university visits.
