Media & Film Masterclass — Solihull Sixth Form College

Media & Film Masterclass

Media/Film Masterclass

Budding Media and Film enthusiasts at The Sixth Form College, Solihull took advantage of a masterclass from the University of South Wales this week.


Daryl Perrins from the Faculty of Creative Industries at the University of South Wales visited the College to deliver this masterclass to A level Media Studies and Film Studies students. The 2-hour session focussed on Film codes and conventions, as well as Media theory, such as theory regarding the male gaze.

Media teacher Rasbinder Gill commented:

“The Film and Media students found the masterclass fitted in with elements they have been taught already. Daryl was able to reinforce many of the theories and practices they have learnt in class and bring in new concepts such as social realism. The University of South Wales have helped enrich the experience of our students and we are grateful.”

In both the Film Studies and Media Studies A levels, students create their own productions, with this coursework element contributing 30% of the final A level grade. This masterclass will help them with those documentaries, which they are in the process of editing.
