Program description

The Film & Photography programme has been designed to enable you to enhance your technical skills in both digital and traditional mediums, whilst developing communication skills essential to working in the Creative industries.

During the programme you will undertake projects using research, documentary and photo-journalistic skills. You will be required to explore project opportunities with external organisations and businesses, to enable you to realise commercial photography and film projects. You will study structural and theoretical aspects of the creative media industries to underpin practical work.

An HNC/D qualification can enable you to progress into the creative industries in a number of different ways; As a free-lance practitioner in film, photography, production or editing; or to an employed role with a production company.

There are also great benefits to having strong skills and knowledge in film and photography production within the design, graphics and advertising industries; many creative careers are also available within web-based companies where increasingly video and photography skills are highly valued.

Our highly qualified and experienced teaching team, have a wealth of industry experience, expertise and industry contacts. They will provide on-going support, and identify work experience and placement opportunities outside of the College, as they occur. In collaboration with Kendal Mountain Festival, this course can give you the opportunity to develop skills in wilderness documentary and adventure film and photography.

Award winning film makers, photographers, and directors have contributed to the creation of this programme, which builds on the success of the ‘Adventure Film Academy Pro’, and the Kendal Mountain Film Academy.

The HNC (Level 4) can be completed in one year, and the full HND (Level 5) over two years. This course is awarded by Pearson and will take place at the Arts and Media Campus, Beezon Road, Kendal.

Kendal’s location between the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and also just one hour from Manchester, make it the ideal place to learn these skills. Surrounded by stunning natural scenery, location scouting has never been so easy!
