Course summary

Whether you are studying A-Level English, Photography, History, Design, or a Creative Media course, our aim is to get you ready to start your career once you finish with us. But your journey starts and ends with creative storytelling – and as any creative professional will tell you, the story is the most essential part of any creative practice. We put you at the centre of the learning, and this means we encourage you to experiment in a range of stories from drama, documentary, photo films, music, fashion films to online content. This process of experimenting will help you to perfect your own unique style of storytelling. Without experimenting, you end up producing boring, predictable, and very forgettable films.
