What is BTEC Creative Media Production?

The Creative Digital Media Production BTEC involves developing the skills needed to plan and produce film, TV, radio and print texts.

You will have the opportunity to develop your practical production skills. You will gain experience in the planning and research which takes place in pre-production. Additionally, you will develop the camera skills needed to film for TV and the editing and evaluation skills needed in post-production.

Furthermore, you will learn how media products are consumed and how audiences interact with creative media products.
