Adventure Media

Why study with us?

Adventures can be life changing. Technological advancements in equipment and software mean that now, more than ever we are able to capture the individuals experience from a diversity of views. Have you dreamt of being the camera operator working alongside the team to capture the ground-breaking moments?

This course has been developed and designed to provide a high quality learning experience for those students who aspire to work in all areas related to adventure, be it travel, adventure activities and sports, or being in the outdoor environment and wish to utilise adventurous based media as a platform for their work. 

The growth in adventure films and related media is constantly on the increase, and certainly encouraged by the accessibility afforded by cameras like Go-Pro and the use of drones (and yes we have a few).

Such growth has seen a strong demand for individuals with knowledge and expertise in a wide number of areas. These areas include ability to work effectively with individuals and groups in dynamic and often adventurous environments; and the capacity to capture media in diverse locations and sometimes hazardous environments (in a safe way of course!).

This is a programme that integrates adventure activities, the environment, travel alongside the visual image and corresponding narration. 

Where will this course take place?

The Brampton Road Campus is our base, situated in Carlisle, with all of the facilities, edit suites and resources needed for the production of media.

The location provides an easy jump off point for the Lake District, the northern Pennines along with Scotland and the coast. With easy access to rail and road networks, we easily transport ourselves into amazing locations quickly.

What can this course lead to?
