Digital Direction addresses emerging issues in contemporary digital communication and the creative economy. Centring on broadcasting, film and experience, the programme develops your skills across four key areas of practice: production, direction, content development and digital media design. We offer grounding in traditional skill sets – including script writing, production design, direction, filming and sound recording – alongside training in coding and programming, VR and AR, 360 video editing, interactive design and AI.

The programme gives you the skills and context to evolve your practice and join the new wave of creative leaders engendering new approaches to media and storytelling.
