Brief Description of the Programme

This programme offers students a balanced study of practical and theoretical disciplines, allowing them to develop skills in moving image production, as well as conduct investigations into theoretical principles and regulatory issues relating to industries in this area. The course is split into four semesters, two per year. The first year includes team work and personal study production, with second year studies focusing on individual planning and production. Students can take the opportunity to work alone or lead a Production team during practical projects.

Practical work is undertaken in a digital environment. Study is predominantly made up of lectures and production for factual and fictional programmes. Certain modules, particularly the studio production module, require teamwork to create and produce a programme in a multi-camera digital studio environment. Assessment is 100% coursework based, involving theory and practical work.

The programme also boasts a series of master classes, led by industry specialists such as Producers, Lighting Designers, Camera Operators and Directors. Truro College has a modern production environment, including a purpose built TV studio and gallery, furnished with digital production equipment.
