Level 3 Media Studies
Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Diamond
In a world of high speed internet, fake news, and social media the Documentary is more important than ever before. Documentaries give you the opportunity to separate fact from fiction and show learning in new and interesting ways. This course will provide you with the opportunity to create your own documentary based on learning that has occurred in another subject. We will explore the conventions of the documentary and develop cinematography, editing, post-production and other technical skills that are critical to becoming a skilled filmmaker.
It is important to note that this course relies heavily on you being able to bring content from another course, and as such this course would work well with Science, PE, or another inquiry rich subject.
