It is practical all the way, with your first video creation happening in the first week. Drama, comedy, music and documentary workshops are peppered throughout the programme. You can also expect a number of road trips be it an exhibition, a film fest or college open day. Portfolio: You will build a significant portfolio, and a solid foundation in the Adobe Creative Suite, including Premiere Pro, Photoshop and InDesign.
With a highly student centred focus, the team at YIFM work with each learner to define their personal project, which will include video, audio, text, imagery and design.
Where possible other students help you with productions, photography and other creative services. You feed into their portfolios and they into yours. It’s like a creative family scenario, we even have a wellbeing officer on the team to ensure learners have their best experience.
There is generally payment for attending the course. You will need to be signed on to Intreo, on Disability payment or be an early school leaver to qualify. There is also assistance with travel costs where appropriate.
