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. Ultimately, professional practice is the key aspect of the course and students will gain an understanding of the contemporary media industries through work experience, lectures, seminars and independent research. A programme of visits to studios and trade shows plus guest lectures from prominent industry practitioners will complement the classroom and studio-based delivery
