The first year of the creative media production course focuses on developing students’ analytical and practical skills with a range of assignments and assessments. The beginning of the year will be focused on training students to use industry standard equipment and software. We have a full Apple Mac suite and class sets of digital SLR cameras available for students to use.
After students have been trained to use the camera equipment and software, they will work on a set of live briefs which include producing an advert for a new product or brand and creating a ten minute film drama.
The second year of the creative media course requires students to apply the knowledge and skills gained in the first year to real world scenarios. Students will work with clients outside of college to produce a range of media products.
Students in the second year will work with a local band to produce a music video. Following on from this students will develop their research and journalism skills to produce a documentary on a local subject matter.
