My name is Lucy Townsend, I am an AS Media student at The Ilfracombe Academy and this is my Portfolio. I chose to do Media at AS because I thoroughly enjoyed the subject at GCSE, I am very interested in it and would love to pursue it as a career in the future. The main aspect of Media that interests me is video production, however I still find other parts of the course beneficial and intriguing, for example studying photography (the images above show some of my previous work in photography.) Alongside Media I am also studying Theatre, Art, and Philosophy and Ethics at college. I would consider myself a fairly bright and aspirational student, having received good grades in my GCSE's and securing a Distinction in my Media course. During our GCSE Media we were able to produce a music video, and this task not only enabled me to gain skills in filming and editing to a professional standard, but also helped me to develop organization and independence skills. I am looking forward to the AS Media course as I will be able to develop these skills even further, along with learning new ones and hopefully producing good quality work I can be proud of.
