Coronavirus: Help to Work from Home
Media students are being encouraged to check out this amazing YouTube channel that will help all students with their continued study of the exam board set texts. The videos on GQ and Pride magazine will be particularly useful for Year 10 students who were half way through this topic when school was closed due to coronavirus.
Students may also find the following links helpful:
Nickonevents.com - free photography courses in April, including one about music videos
Futurelearn.com - lots of free courses, including one about screen writing
Intofilm.org - competitions, including one focused on film review writing. Great for any students interested in screen writing
Bfi.org.uk - ability to screen global cinema perhaps not found elsewhere
Englishandmedia.co.uk - practical competition, submit magazines, posters, film marketing etc.
Students will be introduced to the codes and conventions used in the different media products. They will become familiar with the key concepts and media language in preparation for the representation non-examined component.
They will create different forms of media such as TV programmes, trailers, adverts, film posters, magazines and album covers.
The focus during this year will be to ensure that students feel confident with terminology, concepts and products and have the ability to apply their knowledge in a range of situations.
