Course content

Much of the work you do will revolve around moving image production. You will produce short documentaries, music videos, short films and live tv shows. 


In addition, you will have the opportunity to develop an extended skill set in other areas of the media including magazine production and web design.


You will learn how to create products with specific target audiences in mind, understand the importance of in-depth research and planning. 


As this is a vocational course, we strive to offer students the valuable experience of working in real-life situations outside of the classroom. This involves real clients providing students with a working brief. The client varies each year from local businesses to bands/performers who require a music video and publicity material.


Students should expect the Creative Media Production course to range from 9 to 12 lessons each week, thus occupying a significant number of your weeks lessons.
