Following the completion of the coursework assignments, students are required to produce a Production Essay.
The aim of this essay is to encourage and inspire your creative thinking and ambition. You are asked to match your learning during the induction course with your imaginative aspiration in creating a production in the medium of your choice. You are also being asked to analyse how you would produce your idea in another medium you have experienced and studied.
Please answer the following question:
Describe a media production you would like to produce in one of the areas of media you have studied on the Induction module. Then, explain how you would adapt and produce the same idea for one other medium that you have studied on the module. Take care to thoroughly compare and contrast BOTH mediums, referencing module handouts and wider reading to support your research

An article written for Smiths magazine on an issue about germs – personal or general or MRSA or specific to college.
