Creative Digital Media Production BTEC Level 3 Nationals at The Littlehampton Academy

Course description

Would you like to learn about how and why films, adverts, music videos and television programmes are edited, and plan and create your own? You will work in a professional context, as you respond to a brief and pitch your ideas. You will explore the professional practice of editing, and develop your own technical and creative skills.

Course content

You will research existing television advertisements to investigate how persuasive messages can be constructed. You will then follow professional protocols and plan and produce an advertisement for television aimed at a target audience. You will evaluate the effectiveness of your advert.

You will learn about filming and editing, and how this has developed and changed over time. Through study of the development and principles of editing, you will develop an insight into the ‘language’ of editing and the technical conventions used by editors to communicate with audiences. You will practise these skills, and create a short film in response to a brief. You will learn about the media industry, including job roles and the research and production process they must follow.

Future opportunities

Many of our students go on to study Media Production at university. You could go into a variety of areas, such as animation, computer game design, editing and journalism.
