ABOUT THE COURSE
Do you have an interest in creating moving-image productions, such as television adverts and short films? Do you have ideas that you want to make reality?
If the answer is ‘yes’, Creative Media is the ideal course for you. We offer a general overview of the film and media industries, which covers industry-standard production methods and develops valuable employability skills.
You will work closely with your teacher and peers to create both audio and visual material (such as a television advertisement and a short film), whilst learning all areas of pre-production. You will complete a variety of projects and develop an understanding of basic terms within the industry. In the second year, you will further develop your knowledge of films and what it takes to produce one; you will begin to build upon a portfolio which you can show to future employers. You will also analyse films and delve deeper into the types of jobs available to you within the media industry itself.
WHAT WE ADD
You will have access to software such as Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, InDesign and more to help you produce and create your work. You will also have access to a wide range of cameras and brand new equipment that will allow you to produce your work to a high standard, and help you to develop valuable vocational skills. Staff are qualified in both practical and theoretical film and television techniques.
HOW CAN I STANDOUT WITH CREATIVE MEDIA?
You could progress to a degree in a media-related subject or gain entry into the industry at a junior level. You will have the knowledge and skills to enable you to build a career in a range of media roles such as: producer, screenwriter, director, cinematographer, camera operator, sound mixer and editor.
