This second year (see Level 3 Diploma in Theatrical, Special Effects & MediaMake-upfor year one) enables you to develop your creative approach to texture, 3D casting, drawing techniques and a range of make-up applications including special effects. You will gain a greater understanding of this diverse industry, often by working with industry professionals in order to further prepare you for progression to our outstanding BA (Hons) Media Make-up course at University Centre Somerset at our Taunton campus.
The programme builds on skills developed from previous courses and introduces new creative techniques, covering aspects of media make-up, drawing, multi-media art, digital and 3D, alongside critical practice and developing individual specialisms, in order to deepen your understanding of this creative industry.
Subjects may include:
Alongside these, you study the creative and media make-up industries in detail and specialise in a pathway of your choosing for your major project at the end of the course.
You will have access to trips, visiting speakers and professional facilities. Work placements and work readiness are encouraged throughout the course to ensure that you are ready for progression to degree-level study.
Assessment is through practical and written assignments and observations by your tutor. You will be encouraged to evaluate your own work and the work of others, and to set targets for yourself.
You could progress to a BA (Hons) or Foundation Degree in Media Make-up at University Centre Somerset or other Higher Education courses. Alternatively, you could find employment as a junior or apprentice in the industry.
|Course Title||Media Make-up Pre-degree Level 3|
You need a Level 3 Diploma in Theatrical Special Effects & Media Make-up and five GCSEs in the 9 to 2 (A* to E) range, or another appropriate Level 3 qualification. Entry is subject to a successful application with examples of work and an interview to review your portfolio.
An apprenticeship has been the best option for me since I benefit from working in the industry as well as gaining a qualification. College days give me time to work on my assignments and explore features in the software I haven’t covered at work. During the rest of the week, I develop client relationships which help build my confidence and improve my ability to express ideas.
