Academic Course Leader for Film and Television (Top up)

The beauty of Media Production is the opportunity to be both technical and creative.

'I teach camera work, editing and TV studio operations. I expose my students to as many roles as possible and encourage both technical and creative experimentation.

I've worked on programmes like Match of the Day, Top of the Pops, Blue Peter, 'Allo 'Allo, Children's Hospital, EastEnders, Only Fools and Horses and Monty Python.

For me TV is one of the best industries to work in and I welcome students who are equally passionate about these opportunities'

This Media Production course provides students who are keen to work in cutting-edge media industries with opportunities to develop a unique set of skills and experiences. You will cover a range of subjects including interactive design, contemporary moving image, web technologies, graphics and animation right from your first year. You will also have opportunities to develop in progressive and emergent fields such as app development and Virtual Reality, with tools including GoPro VR and Google Project Tango.

Students have worked for many high-profile media outlets including production companies, newspapers and start-ups, producing exciting digital content. Strong links with industry mean that you will be able to meet and learn from respected practitioners. Guests at the annual media school festival have included YouTube entrepreneurs Yogscast and head of digital for BT Sport’s social media content editor, Leigh Moore.
