Creative Media Production BTEC Extended Diploma Level 3 at Wilberforce College

Course description

This is a very practical course ideally suited to students who want hands-on experience of production work in the media rather than consistently writing analyses or essays. With lessons taking place in our newly built Media Centre, you will gain an understanding of media and research techniques. You will find out about production management, pre-production techniques and video technology. You will also take specialist units looking at shooting a single camera drama, video editing, animation production and more.
