 Media (Film)

Simply, the world needs entertaining! Bringing ideas to life requires different areas of film making and you will get the opportunity to sample them, as well as the latest technology. Find and develop your area of expertise in an ever-evolving industry.

You will study all areas of television and film production as well as being trained in the operation of related equipment, in our fully equipped Media workshops, Apple Mac suites, an HD TV Studio, Art Studios and Photography Studio/Darkroom.

You will study directing, editing, scriptwriting and live television production. You will operate cameras, sound equipment, lighting, and industry standard editing software incorporating image manipulation/generation with after effects.

You will produce adverts, music videos, live television shows, documentaries and a final major project short film. You can enhance your skills with ‘Live Briefs’, learning from lecturers who have worked in creative roles in the industry.
If your son, daughter or ward is currently a Media student at Boston College, and you have a question or query, you can contact Neil Percy, Programme Area Manager for Media by emailing
