BDMA Opens Its Doors

BDMA Opens Its Doors

2nd December 2015 Journal 0

Exciting times at BDMA – we’ve opened our doors to over 40 students across both BACA and PACA sites.  BDMA students have just completed their 2 week induction involving camera and editing techniques which has enabled them to produce their first films and experience a true taste of what the next 2 years has in store for them.

Working with industry tutors; Evan Wilkinson and Mhairi Beveridge from Latest TV along with Nick Beddows and Koa Padolsky has really enhanced our students’ learning experience. Some of our industry partners have also been into our schools to present live professional briefs, including:

  • Propellernet and Unknown Epic at BACA for Unit 30: Advertisement Production for Television
  • Latest TV and Thoughtshift at PACA for Unit 30: Advertisement Production for Television
  • Ricochet at BACA for Unit 5: Working to a Brief in the Creative Media Industries

We have a number of master classes planned for the next few months including:

  • Angela Bird on Digital Marketing
  • Emma Wakefield on Production Development with particular reference to Lambent Productions highly successful C5 series ‘The Special Needs Hotel’
  • Joe Coyne, Fatsand Films – on creative approach to directing
  • Northbrook College students – showing their most recent work and introduction to college life

Along with the highly prestigious Adobe Premiere full week production project for BACA students just after half-term.

Finally, you can see below when this week all our Y12 BDMA students met up for the first time at BACA for a master class on the practice of advertising for television delivered by Andrew Kay and Latest TV.
