L2 Media Studies - Full Year - 2022

Understand how/why TV and Films exist the way they do & how you can become a content creator.

Course Overview

The Level 2 course covers many aspects, from understanding the money–making horror genre (German Expressionism into the postmodern horrors of the 2000’s), to the consequences of how groups of people have been shown in tv, advertising and films. We even traipse through the cheesy, but touchstone tv series ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’. 

Students make a short silent horror film for the practical production component of the course.
