Media End of Year Show

Following the success of the inaugural event last year, the Media Studies department held its second Media End of Year Show last week.

The event was a celebration of work produced by A2 Media Studies and BTEC Creative Digital Media Production students, and was attended by over 130 visitors. This special evening was an opportunity to screen many of the moving image projects produced by the Sixth Form Media students. The evening included an hour-long screening showcasing both Y12 and Y13 Media Studies coursework, along with the Creative Digital Media Production students’ Unit10 Film Production final films.

In Y12 the students are required to create the opening two minutes of a commercial film, including institutional elements such as production company logos and title sequences. In Y13 A2 Media, the students make a fully realised music video, whilst the Y13 BTEC students have the chance to make a 5-7-minute short film.

Craig Foxall, Head of Media Studies, said: “This year’s End of Year Show was a terrific opportunity to showcase the excellent work produced by our talented Y12 and Y13 Media students. The students embraced a range of genres and styles, although they clearly enjoy creating scary content as many of them were inspired by the horror genre, with their creations producing several ‘jump scares’ throughout the evening!

“The BTEC Creative Digital Media Production students are to be commended for creative, professional and well executed short films. Orlando’s was a gritty, imaginative and well stylised production, whilst Andrii’s and Alex’s were atmospheric, tense and in places, absolutely terrifying! Orlando even found the time to write the musical score for his own film and Alex’s. We are so proud that our students had the opportunity to see their work on the big screen to a large audience. I would like to thank my colleagues Mr Osei-Tutu and Mr Cheung for co-ordinating the event, all the family and friends who attended the event, and would like to give a special mention to all our Media Studies students for their hard work. Next stop; Hollywood!”
