Level 3 Media Studies
Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Birch
This course is suited to students with a strong interest in film production and journalism. Students learn about different aspects of the media industry, expand their understanding of the production of media texts and develop skills in critical analysis particularly in the representation unit. Students further expand their knowledge of how media texts are constructed and apply this knowledge in their film production unit. Working in small groups they create a short film of their choice with an ethical message aimed at a specific audience.
