ScreenSpace has partnered up with industry leaders Twitter, Microsoft and Karmarama on our BA Content, Media & Film Production course. Each semester an industry partner embedded in the screen and creative industries use their expertise to shape the students’ experience that semester.
Each partner will deliver a masterclass at the start of term and set students an assessment brief which they must work to as part of their Production module. As well as industry advice and expertise the partners will introduce students to the business dynamics of their part of the creative industries, helping them to learn more about the media landscape. They will judge production assessments of the students, award prizes to the winning entries, and may even use the material as part of their brand.
The student will be working to industry briefs from day one, getting direct experience of pitching and tailoring their content to real-life clients.
“Twitter is what’s happening in the world and what people are talking about right now.”
With 330 million active monthly users, Twitter truly is a social network with global reach. Set up in 2006 as a microblogging service, Twitter allows users to read and ‘Tweet’ messages in 140 characters as well as videos and photos. Users can follow and interact with any other user, whether it be Katy Perry (109 million followers) or Barack Obama (101 million). Twitter is now an important channel for governments and heads of state – Kensington Palace announced Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement on the site.
Twitter believe every voice can make an impact on the wider world. So they have teamed up with ScreenSpace on the “Tell a Story” module, where powerful messages about what is happening in society can be told.
‘Twitter is where the world see what’s happening. Our users love seeing stories told in innovative ways. Working with Screenspace to enable the next generation of creative story tellers to develop their skills seemed like a perfect union. We’re excited about what the future holds for Students of ScreenSpace.’

This is because I care about the impact that creativity makes on society, the growth in career opportunities for the creator community, and the continued success of the UK’s vibrant, pioneering, and flourishing creative industries”.
