Course summary

The Foundation Degree in Creative Media Production is designed for students wishing to develop a range of creative and technical skills, a greater understanding of visual communication and an informed strategy for entry into the creative media industries. The course provides training in camera, sound, lighting, direction, editing and post production techniques developed through working on a variety of drama, documentary, music and experimental video production. There is a commercial element to the course in which students work to external client briefs to create artefacts with a function and purpose in the world beyond the college. The programme also develops students’ critical and analytical faculties enabling further higher level study. This is a production-led course which aims to graduate practitioners with a broad cultural frame of reference for their production work. It is designed to nurture students’ creativity in all aspects of video production; to provide opportunities to acquire and develop relevant industry skills and working practices in order to successfully enter the industry. Valuable transferable research skills are taught, along with the ability to reflect on learners’ own practice, to analyse and evaluate their work in search of the desired professional standards. Facilities available to students include a full HD multicam TV studio and digital audio suite; multiple HD location cameras with portable lighting and audio accessories and excellent software packages for editing.
