This course examines the way professionals create film images and how new technologies affect those images and stories. Students are introduced to practical and theoretical issues around cinema, media convergence, new media, media industries and their management methods. Editing and design skills, animation production and digital video production are all core to the course. Options include sound design for moving image, cinematography and scriptwriting. This course provides students with skills to analyse, design and produce media for audiences and the industries that make this possible. Creative and professional practice is firmly linked to critical reflection.
Normally students will need five GCSEs of grade C or above and two A levels or national equivalents. Maths GCSE is not required.
