This course aims to develop graduates who will shape the world of media work as creative communicators: agile, critical, ethical, and collaborative makers of media content. Media Production is an industry-focused course with its core disciplines being: film; audio production, and digital media design, underpinned by scriptwriting. Students engage with each of these in their first year. The second year builds on this as students learn to work across media forms and platforms, in ways that reflect many of the changes that media industries are currently undergoing. By the third year, students can specialise, and much of the focus is on their Graduate Production Project, a piece of work developed and made by them in whatever media form (or forms) they choose to work.
What's more, the course is designed in dialogue with industry partners and aims to equip future media workers who are:
- Able to tell stories and communicate effectively through multiple media, and combinations of media, in a range of virtual and physical spaces.
- Professionally competent particularly in the creative uses of digital film, audio, and networked media.
- Flexible and versatile, and are able to respond to the challenges and opportunities of structural and regulatory changes, new technologies, new convergences, and the shifting demands of clients and audiences.
- Confident in the exercise their moral agency as informed, critical and reflective practitioners.
