Progression and Career Opportunities
A Level Film Studies will not automatically offer a career in film, TV or journalism. Practical work experience is often the way forward, usually starting as a runner or getting involved with other local film makers, production companies to build a portfolio of work and industry contacts.
Students wishing to pursue a career in film/media industry are encouraged to seek out work experience placements. Past students have gained work experience on ITV crime drama Vera and the 2012 film The Liability, both of which were shot locally.
At university level you have a choice of courses, some with a theory bias and others providing more practical training for working in the media.
