COURSE DETAILS
As well as industry skill sets, the course also provides a wide range of opportunities for students who are focussed on conceptual exploration of moving-image production. Learners are provided with the choice to study a variety of assignments, such as advertising, documentary and fine art film making. Recently, students Abbie Ridge and Fenton Ray were both shortlisted for US based film Festival ‘Student Impact Awards’ and both have also been officially selected for the ‘Lift Off Global-Network’ Film Festival based in London. Group work is essential, so you will quickly make new friends while 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. The course has a range of industry links that provide ‘live projects’ and work experience. Within these projects, students have worked with local businesses and charities such as PlayBrew Co, Rounton Coffee Roasters, Red Balloons, The Hartlepool Foodbank and so many more. Students have also enjoyed a range of talks from industry speakers, including Jonny Grant (Director of Development and Distribution for Entertainment Squad/The Horror Collective based in LA), Wander Films, Chris J. Allan (Festival Director – Sunderland Shorts Film Festival), Lilia Parvin-Franks (Events Programmer for BFI) and lots more. The film and television industry is a hugely active sector within the creative industries and has grown year on year, in 2020 there were 86,000 jobs within the sector and in 2022 there were over 16,000 film and TV production companies in the UK alone. In recent figures we can see that the industry contributes approximately £6.1 billion to the UK’s economy.
