This A Level Study Day is designed to use set products to teach core industry and audience concepts. The Jungle Book (2016), Straight Outta Compton (2015), I, Daniel Blake (2016) and Hidden Figures (2016) will be used to illustrate the fundamental concepts of: production, ownership & funding, plus distribution and marketing. Students will have the opportunity to explore audience and audience targeting, digital technology and issues of regulation. The afternoon session will investigate video games and use Minecraft, Assassins Creed III: Liberation and SIMS Freeplay to embed core industry and audience concepts but crucially, to demonstrate key industry differences, particularly in terms of audience and game players. As with the film orientated morning session, the second part of the day will unpack synergy and convergence and reveal links with platforms to explore the relationship between the developer and publisher. The role of PEGI and also digital distribution will be covered and the chance to meet an industry professional.
