Creative Media Production and Technology Level 2 at Rotherham College

Course description

The director calling ‘lights, camera, action’. The actors and actresses collecting all the gongs. The influential radio presenter playing the latest hits. They would all be nothing without the technical production crew operating the cameras, co-ordinating the lights or recording the sound.

Our media and photography courses will build your knowledge and skills to prepare you for a career in animation, production (film, TV and radio) and visual communications (graphics, photography and design). With cutting-edge facilities that replicate those out in industry, you’ll use state-of-the-art equipment and be taught by experienced media and photography professionals. You’ll work as part of a media team to produce work for real clients such as Sheffield Live, former international football referee Howard Webb, and The Makers Emporium in Rotherham.

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved with enrichment activities: trips to attractions such as Media City, BBC Broadcasting House and London.
