This unique, practical course, with unrivaled connections to the industry, works with leading industry partners, to not only give you specialist knowledge but valuable hands-on work experience.
This course will take participants through the process of taking a piece of content (a game, TV show or a feature film) to its market – examining how the sales, marketing, distribution and retail (or exhibition) side of each industry works from “nose to tail”. The course will also look at the emergence of new and innovative forms of media that merge traditional media with digital markets (including Youtubers, branded content among others) and the commercial side of each.
Top reasons to apply:
A unique, two-year course, that gives you all the tools to pre-sell, market, distribute, retail and exhibit films, television shows and games in the digital age.
Exclusive scholarship available from our course partners, the UK Cinema Association.
