Video and Production Technology
Extending upon the technical knowledge and understanding of digital equipment and production systems, this module introduces the exploration and application of full manual control of the video camera. The implementation of extended non-linear editing and lighting techniques, alongside production budgeting and management skills, allows for the exploration and analysis of programme styles and broadcast delivery methods.
Enhancing employability through the completion of work based activities, the student will engage with industry professionals and established practitioners. Embedding a context of learning in what an individual continually develops in everyday working practice, the planning and structuring of activities allow the process of self-managed learning to enhance employability skills.
The exploration and understanding of audio file formats and codecs underpins the development of skills in studio recording, mixing techniques and synthesising acoustic environments. The mixing of audio in both a studio desk and a digital audio workstation allows for experimentation in mixing techniques, which can then be employed within future projects.
Post Production Techniques
Focusing on the application and implementation of advanced post production techniques, this module introduces compositing principles and theories which allow for the experimentation in colour correction and synchronising audio. Creating motion with stills and moving images, the use of paths and layers will be explored.
Developing an understanding of and application of radio production making and broadcasting, this module allows exploration within programme structures, genres, and writing & interviewing skills for effective radio production. The preparation and scripting of links and cues underpins the operational roles and associated responsibilities within radio programming.
