Where will this course lead?
The HND in Creative Media Production is a two-year, full time level 5 programme. Learners also have the option to complete a year-long HNC course at level 4.
On successful completion of the course you will be able to complete a top up year for a BA (Hons) degree. You will also develop the necessary skills to enter the workplace should you choose to do so.
The course covers many aspects of media production with a focus on moving image. You will have the opportunity to work both independently and as part of a team to create narrative-based productions, including short films and music videos. Additionally, you will develop skills in pre-production (including scriptwriting and storyboarding), production (such as framing a shot and editing) and evaluation.
All production assignments will be supported by study of integrated theories such as genre and narrative. This will encourage you to apply academic study to your productions.
You will be given the opportunity to create products which will be entered into competitions and film festivals. Guest speakers and professional workshops will be incorporated to enrich your learning and develop your knowledge of working in industry. Recent guest speakers have included filmmakers Debbie Isitt (Nativity and Confetti), Andrea Arnold (Fish Tank and American Honey), Joe Stephenson (Chicken) and Jane Gull (My Feral Heart).
