This course allows you to work on a variety of different creative projects such as short films, documentaries, single camera drama, film trailers, social media content creation and creative photography.
You will learn to script, plan and story board, use camera equipment, edit film and work with audio to ensure you have a good understanding of the variety of skills used within the film and TV industries.
You will have the opportunities to explore lots of different skills and creative techniques combining theory and practice. Group work is essential, so you will quickly make new friends whilst learning the creative and technical skills necessary for industry. Projects are designed to give you an insight into varying careers within the film, TV and online broadcast industries. These include camera operators, editors, directors, producers, cinematographers and more. There are also opportunities to gain input from industry professionals and work on live projects whilst you explore a range of film making methods, varying from the latest film capture equipment in the studio environment, to smartphones and portable lighting. The course enjoys a range of industry links who provide ‘live projects’ and work experience, including Ithica Films, Sport TV production, Siren Media. Projects have included working with The White Feather Project (Pallister Park), Crisis (Newcastle) and Camphill Village Trust (Hemlington), Rose Cottage Wellness Centre and ‘Enter CIC;. Students also enjoy a range of talks and industry speakers including Tom Marshall (alumni), Jeannie Finlay, Izak Jackson (VoltaMedia) and Caris Rianne (Rianne Pictures). You will build your very own show-reel as a portfolio that will help you progress into higher education or into employment. The film and television industry is a hugely active sector within the creative industries and has grown year on year to contributing approximately £6.1billion to the UK's economy in the year prior to Covid. The industry is emerging from lockdown and we are confident the demand for skilled creative professionals will continue. The Tees Valley is already an established location for feature films and high end TV (Star Wars, Black Widow, 1917, Vera and many others have all filmed in the area in the past couple of years) and the British Film Institute and British Film Council have agreed that there is an ongoing need for skilled people in the industry.
