What makes Creative Media and Film Production at Worcester special?

Both these subject areas focus primarily on learning through 'doing'. They explore fields of creative practice that are highly complementary and studying them as Joint Honours is therefore full of possibility. In combination, they will enable you to develop your creative work through drawing on a broad range of visual, design and moving image approaches.

All of your learning will be mutually informing and, ultimately, this could lead to your developing an innovative, interdisciplinary final year project, which draws together all of your interests.

In combination, these courses are well worth considering if creative practice is your chosen approach to learning and study, if you are looking for a degree that will provide you with wide-ranging preparation to enter the multitude of employment fields encompassed by the creative and media industries, especially, and if your interests are fired by the possibilities afforded by today's digital design and communication contexts.

Teaching and assessment

How will you be taught?

In Creative Media, available modules enable you to develop expertise in areas of digital design and creative practice including graphic design, animation, motion graphics, illustration and photography.

As well as developing your creative work and digital 'skills', you will be introduced to the creative industries and the multitude of professions and careers associated with them. Many of your projects will respond to 'live' briefs set in collaboration with industry professionals. With their own, impressive experience as creatives, your lecturers, too, are expertly placed to share with you their inside knowledge of professional work.

Film Production offers opportunities to explore a broad range of film forms and cultures, including fiction and documentary forms and commercial and experimental production.

You can specialise as you progress through the course and, if you wish, tailor your studies to focus on career specialisms including producing, directing, sound, cinematography, post-production, and visual effects. The craft skills of production are integral to your learning throughout and you are encouraged to experiment and explore your talents towards developing your own creative 'voice'. Film Production is characterised by its practical approach to learning (you learn through making), by the value that it places on nurturing creative individuality and by its encouragement of a critically reflective approach.
