Working with multiple businesses and organisations in York, final year Creative Media students at York College have created some impressive corporate and promotional videos.
Using film making and production skills learnt on the Extended Diploma Level 3 Creative Media course, the students have created 30 - 60 second videos reflecting local organisations such as York Barbican, Holgate Windmill, Your Bike Shed, Gr8Escape, Yorkshire Air Museum, Sore Thumb Retro Gaming, Choc Affair and York Motorsport Village.
Media tutor Scott Langford said: “Our Creative Media students did a great job undertaking client work to produce short corporate promo videos for local businesses. The student production teams, paired with a business or organisation, liaised independently to produce high quality promos to reflect the style, ethos and USP of their clients. This was an important part their development as self-directed production students, working to the expectations of a client and managing that process. The majority of our Creative Media students are aiming for progression to university or employment in the sector and this is a good test of their career aspirations. The results have been very well received by the participating organisations and the College is very grateful for the opportunities local businesses/organisations have provided our students.”
Creative Media student Lili Brewin, aged 17 (formerly of Huntington School) says: “When I was at school I decided it would be great to work in film making and production. The Creative Media course at College is very interesting, plus I study A Level Film Studies alongside, which gives me a great mix of theory and practical work. The course gives you a real taste of the industry. I particularly enjoyed working on the promotional video for Gr8Escape – York’s first live escape room. I felt confident speaking to the client about the specialist experience they offer, to get ideas for the kind of video I could produce for them. I like working with the camera and I love post-production work - the final edit is so rewarding.” Lili hopes to progress to The University of Salford to study TV and Radio.”
