You’ll use the latest industry hardware to create exciting portfolio projects, collaborating with those from other media disciplines just as you would in the workplace.
The second group of units will teach you about the role of the producer and help you to develop a broader creative understanding of idea generation, storytelling, how to engage your audience and how to use social media effectively. You’ll also learn about the logistics of content production, and about the most effective ways of selling ideas to potential clients.
The final strand focuses on employability, ensuring that you graduate from the course fully prepared for the professional workplace.
