Creative Media Production BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma at Ivybridge Community College

Course description

You will explore the media practically and look at industry specific case studies. There is a heavy emphasis on production and pre-production techniques used in conjunction with the communication skills necessary for media productions. This will range from planning and creating texts to considering the advertising and marketing for these products and the way in which they target the audience for their products.

You will build a portfolio of evidence for each unit, which will involve both small practical tasks and responses alongside larger practical projects. Responses will range across all types of media.

What will you study?

The units available are varied and range across a broad spectrum of media forms and genres. You will be studying production techniques and communications skills relevant to the media industry today. Units focussing on production skills will encourage you to use your creativity to produce your own media texts, such as film and video.

The emphasis of the course is on the way in which the things you learn can be applied practically. Intrinsic to the course are visits which complement the assignments and give you a rich and varied idea of the way in which media is produced.
