Future Creative Content Now

A six-week, multidisciplinary, content creation course for young creatives to gain and develop skills in digital storytelling & production

We’ve joined forces with industry leaders to co-design a course which will give you a comprehensive overview of the different job roles available to go into in the multiplatform spaces showcasing audio visual & digital content. With instant access to industry, you’ll learn about how to make compelling, authentic content from the people who create it.

From audio production for podcasts, through short and long form documentary making, video direction, production and editing, this taster course introduces you to multiple roles, storytelling approaches and opportunities. We will lift the lid on a cross-section of creative content creation in order to provide you with the broadest outlook and variety of skills that a fast-changing industry is currently in need of.

This course is not about specialising in any one thing, it’s about sampling different roles & developing several skills in order to build your ability to be multi-skilled & adaptable, to join the content dots and carve out a newly defined career.
