STUDENTS keen on a career in media can get an insight into the industry by attending a creative media camp.
A group of ambitious educational providers worked together to create an organisation, Make Happen, which encourages youths into higher education. The organisation is holding the stimulating camp for young people aged 14-18 at South Essex College’s Southend campus between 14 – 18 of August.
The camp gives youths an opportunity to show their creative side and create a project on UN Sustainable Development Goals using imagery.
The camp includes workshop sessions in Film, Photography and Graphic Design from higher education tutors from the University Centre Southend. With top end equipment such as Macs, a suite of Canon cameras and a photography and TV studio, participants will benefit from this experience.
Youths will participate in a story-telling project that will enable attendees to develop their abilities and refine their skills; they will be expected to present their ideas at Canon headquarters at the end of the camp.
Current degree student will be on hand to answer any questions the attendees have, while also giving them a perspective on what it’s like to study media and other related subjects at a degree level.
Zosia Mrozek-Folkierska from the Ideas Foundation, which is helping to run the event, said: “We’re looking for people full of original ideas and ready to come up with creative pieces of work.
“This camp offers unbeatable opportunities, it’ll be an intense week of professional production. Students will come away with real work experience which will be a brilliant addition to their CVs.”
