Hi guys, for today’s blog I’m gonna talk about the course I am currently studying within the media department, and some things that you may not know if your thinking about doing this or something similar.
Type of material studied: Film and TV production is at its core a creative subject so you know that there will be lot’s of practical work throughout the course, but what you may not know is that there is a fair bit of theory behind the material as well. This is down to it being an honours degree so there has to be an element of theoretical understanding behind what you are studying. Now, I honestly can’t say I loved all of it! But, it’s definitely not all bad and some if it is pretty interesting and in some aspects can feed in nicely to your understanding of the production side of things.
Travel opportunities: If you are interested in trips away then there are things available, this year there was a placement opportunity in Greece if that interest’s you. Closer to home last year we went to York for the annual film festival which is a neat day out.
Events within the University: The Festival in a day is a big one for the media department as they get in different speakers from various roles within the industry, there are also raffles for work placements as well. Speakers can also come in at other times of the year to give masterclasses and are usually free to attend if you are a student, most recently David Yates visited, the director of four Harry Potter films and both Fantastic Beast’s features. These events are definitely something to look out for if your thinking of, or already are studying at Edge Hill!
That’s all for today, any question’s let me know and thanks for reading!
