If you are invited for an interview, plan to be in college for around three hours. The interview involves:
- A short presentation from the course lecturer
- Written task (because writing effectively is central to this course)
- Individual interview with the lecturer and another course tutor
Written task -
Produce a handwritten document (one side of A4) introducing yourself that informs us:
Who you are and what are your hobbies?
Why you are interested in the course?
What experience you feel you may have in relation to photography, art, video or other visual communication?
Name any photographers, artists or film-makers whose work you like and explain what you like about it.
What books, magazines, newspapers or websites you read?
- Research Task (to be word processed)
Source one photograph or a piece of art work that has been published in a magazine, newspaper or book that you personally feel is a strong, powerful image. In approximately 250 words explain who’s work it is, in what publication you found it, what it shows and why you think it is a successful image. Try researching some compositional techniques and/or design terminology in order to explain why the image, in your opinion, is a good one. Remember to include the image. Print this off.
Bring both the above to your interview.
