Facts and Figures
The specification we are doing has only ran for a year in this school. Yet in this year we were able to achieve:
5 Brand New Digital Camcorder
4 Brand New Digital Cameras
Photoshop and InDesign
Here we look at how and why producers and script writers portray certain social groups in specific ways. For example:
British Film Industry?
It’s not about watching Films. We look at how Institutions operate and how audiences engage with the film industry.
For this the students research the music magazine industry, create their own music mag front cover, contents page and double page spread. The coursework is submitted on a blog.
At A2 the students complete another coursework module which focuses on producing a film promotion package.
The exam that they take develops their knowledge of media theories in section A. In section B they answer a question based on Media and the collective Identity.
