They have to capture what is exciting about a campaign and design the elements that can be used across media platforms and channels.

The job role will involve collaboration with others (for example web developers) to create content for the web and may also include creating video, photography graphics, text (or ‘copy’) and social media content. They can work in advertising, marketing or digital agencies, or in interactive roles for broadcasters. Content producer roles can also be found in a wide range of businesses, such as in-house marketing and communication teams for example.

Spotlight

My animation skills have improved greatly since I have been learning at BTC. The College uses specialist software such as Adobe Animate and the equipment we use is the same that is used in industry. Alongside my course I am a member of the BTC Animation Academy where we do even more animation and enter competitions.
