Welcome to Media Studies

media studies

Media Studies is where you will learn the skills by which you will become "media savvy" - in other words you will be able to interpret and critically examine the information and entertainment that the modern Media bombard us with.  You will study aspects of both print and video, examining a genre of film and analyzing the elements which a director uses to create a scene. Over the course of the year you will produce a video of your own in which you will demonstrate the knowledge you have gained. You will become aware of the pitfalls and benefits of the Social Media and how they are changing the fabric of our everyday lives.  Special mention should be made of the weekly "Media Moment" where we have the opportunity to examine a humorous, silly or earth shaking moment in the Media at the time.
