Digital Media Week

The rise of digital in the Tees Valley was the focus of Week 2 of these resources. This week we focus in on one particular aspect of digital: creating media. This ranges from straightforward ‘film’ to the more digitally produced animated resources. We have some outstanding film companies in the Tees Valley. For example, Ithica films have been established for several years and work both locally and internationally whereas you also have up and coming companies like the ‘mint’ team at Wander who produce really innovative content. Our first two days will focus on film as a key literacy skill with a focus on digital content for Friday. I appreciate that these resources do require a small amount of tech but it is the nature of the beast and writing a script without the means to film, although a worthwhile activity, will not have the same learning outcomes gained through seeing it on screen.
