    Well, for me this year we did
    TV Advertisements
    Film Studies
    Promotional Video
    Radio Shows
    Radio Dramas
    Experimental Film

    Next year we should be doing things like music videos and tv shows which sounds like a lot of fun. I've really enjoyed this year and I've managed to keep way up to date with everything, yes it is a lot of paperwork but I enjoy it . I'd say its worth it as long as that's what you want to do in the future

    The Creative media book from Pearson (if that is the exam board) However, This isn't really a course that you can study from as its all coursework. Ask your teachers and tutors for the powerpoints from lessons, they will most likely give it to you

    I am studying this too! I have just done the first exam on representation Unit 1- It was on video game adverts. Wasn't really prepared for that topic but I definitely think it could have been worse. I'm doing Unit 14 and Unit 4 mergered together now for the rest of the year- magazines- not the biggest fan of the subject but am enjoying most of it.
