Bridgwater & Taunton College Media Academy Academy

The Media Academy incorporates three schools: design, journalism and production. All three work on live briefs generated by professional clients, so if you wish to pursue a career in the creative industries or enhance your practical skills, the Media Academy helps develop attributes valued by employers or university interviewers.

Held at both Bridgwater and Taunton campuses.

Design School students will work in conjunction with A Level Graphic Design and the Foundation Degree Art & Design students to provide a comprehensive and innovative design service. Creative solutions may include logo and poster designs, company branding and multi-media signage and production.

A news blog relating to the College, community or popular culture is just one of the media channels you could be working on in the Journalism School. Previous students have had their press releases about the Media Academy events printed in the local newspapers. There is also a lot of teamwork across the Schools that enhances your interview techniques, sound design and editing skills.

The aim of the Production School is to create promotional and informative videos for real clients. You work in small production teams led by a Project Manager/Director, and offer a range of services including pre-production planning, project management, camera and sound operation, editing and post-production, title graphics, voice-overs and the sourcing of stock music.

You will get the chance to express your interest in the Academy at your course interview, and from here, apply.
