Course Brief

This unit is designed to develop interdisciplinary collaboration and creative engagement following a Pearson-set theme. The unit focuses upon the students’ engagement with the wider community and provides a platform to explore
collaborative working practices within creative media production. Students will have the opportunity to work in small groups, work with external partners or collaborate as an entire cohort to undertake creative media production work as part of a shared experience.

Wherever possible, the unit will simulate working studio conditions, which will enhance and develop professional industry skills and practice. The ability to define, plan and undertake a project are critical skills throughout the
various roles within the creative industries. Identifying appropriate information and analysing this to formulate clear solutions is required to underpin many of the processes that inform applied practice.
