13 Media Studies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss S. Johnston

This course builds on the knowledge of film analysis and production gained from the Year 12 Media Studies course. While involvement in the Level 2 programme is not a pre-requisite, students who have not studied Level 2 will need to be prepared to put in additional effort to learn appropriate terminology at the start of the year. The course consists of a study of a variety of film genres and a close investigation of the television industry. Students will be required to research and investigate relevant issues for all topics and produce in depth written responses. Working in small groups, students will use digital technologies to produce a short documentary.


Recommended Prior Learning
