The course is made up of three units of work.
Media Analysis: Fiction and Media Analysis: Non-fiction
In these units you will study a wide range of examples of media texts and develop skills in interpreting and analysing these.
Suitable examples of text might include:
cinema film, soap opera, magazine or comic strip stories, lyrics
newspapers, magazines, brochures, advertisements and websites
In this unit you will contribute to a group production with a particular audience in mind. The exercise will show you some of the practical issues which professionals have to deal with in various aspects of media production work. You will be involved in researching, planning, making and reviewing a media product which may be in the form of video, audio, print or computer animation. You must undertake both technological work, such as camera operating, and non-technological work such as scriptwriting.
