Course aim

To introduce students to the fundamental practice-led research and creative design principles, processes, skills and media production techniques required for use within and across a variety of digital media formats.

Course content

Students identify, research and generate creative ideas around the promotion of a message or product and develop the skills to produce a short video to deliver this message. Students are also introduced to basic web development and design skills through the production of a simple website that is used to distribute the short promotional video. The course introduces students to some of the key conceptual, technical and craft issues related to digital media production, and gives students the opportunity to create a media production based on the research that they undertake.
