Working in pairs, second year students produce their own 2 minute fashion film – from initial ideas and research into stories, brands, emerging designers and promotion. They experience all areas of filmmaking and explore prop making, set design, behind the scenes documentary making, storyboarding, screenwriting, costume design, direction of models and theory. An understanding of these film making skills is essential in the contemporary fashion promotion and media industry, and underpins many final year projects.
In November 2016 we held our annual Alumni Day. Graduates from Fashion Promotion (BA) Hons came back to Rochester to talk to our current students about life after university with a series of inspiring talks. Our students then had the opportunity to question Alumni for their career journeys and advice.
