The Film and Media Production course has been designed to reflect both the film and broadcast industries. Using industry standard hardware, including a range of cameras and our own Radio and TV Studio (sponsored by YouTube Music), you will complete a wide range of industry-related projects, including music videos, short films, documentaries, and photography. Alongside this you will collaborate on live broadcasts covering both TV and radio. Underpinning these practical projects are more theory-based assignments that cover subjects such as scriptwriting, film studies and industry related topics.
Our students have undertaken placements on a range of productions, from feature films, to advertisements and radio. Every year, working as part of a crew, our students travel to a secret location for four days to shoot short films. BRIT Live is the department’s very own magazine style show that is broadcast monthly via YouTube. We also celebrate the success of all of our students through the department’s annual award showcase (sponsored by Netflix) held at the BFI Southbank and online:
