Film & TV
Our Film and Television programme is one of the most popular of our Media courses and our talented students progress into industry or to university. The course provides an in-depth introduction to the creative, theoretical and technical skills the industry needs. Work experience and live briefs are a key aspect of this exciting programme.
Students have their own Film and TV production company, Red Chair Productions, which works with clients. One particularly outstanding production was the ground-breaking “Question Cambridgeshire”, where students worked with Shape Your Place to produce, direct and film a live studio debate between county councillors. The hour-long debate was a resounding success – and brought this reaction from one observer…
“Well done to students (and their teachers & mentors) for producing such a professional production of ‘Question Cambridgeshire’ – our first local version of Question Time. To make it crystal clear, this wasn’t a simulation or some sort of ‘staged learning experience’ for young people: this was the real deal. This was local politicians being put on the spot by students at the college in a production filmed inside the college’s in house TV studio – fully equipped with the sort of equipment you would expect to see in a small professional media firm. And unlike me with digital media at the moment, they knew how to use their kit.” Antony Carpen
