What will I be studying?

This interesting and varied course teaches you how movies are made and how they are designed to have an effect on an audience. You will learn how camera work, design, editing and music are all used together to manipulate an audiences emotions and provoke specific emotions. You will watch and analyse films from lots of different places and times to examine the similarities and differences. You will have the opportunity to put what you have learned into practice by making or writing your own short film. Key skills needed for this course include; the ability to write clearly, the ability to concentrate, the ability to take notes. Key skills you will learn include; visual comprehension, media literacy, the ability to construct a written argument, an understanding of film and TV language.

The course is examined by three papers:
