Is this the course for you?
Are you fanatical about film and love to talk about television? If your answer is yes, then we have the perfect course for you.
Although the methods, processes and technologies used to produce films and video games are merging together, each still requires their own unique expertise. That is why we offer our Level 2 Diploma in Creative Media Production and Technology with two distinct pathways, each designed to teach you the essential technical skills that you will need for employment, or further study, in your chosen specialism.
This course is focussed on developing your knowledge and understanding of the film and TV sectors.
Through practical learning and real-world immersive study, you will develop both the creative media skills, and theoretical knowledge, required for a successful and rewarding career in film and television. You will gain experience of audio and visual production and technology, interactive media, creative media methods, and a range of production techniques for film and TV.
More than just developing your technical skills, you will also gain a deeper knowledge of the theories and principles of creative media production, and increase your understanding of the media industries as a whole. You will learn about professional standards, the expectations of the industry, the uses of creative media, and how to apply media practice to express your ideas to a range of audiences.
So, whether you already know the specific career path you wish to follow, or want to progress on to further study and Higher Education, our Level 2 Diploma in Creative Media Production and Technology pathways can give you the perfect platform for future success.
