What is Future Creative Content Now?

It is a six-week, multidisciplinary, content creation course for young creatives to gain and develop skills in digital storytelling & production.

What do we mean by creative content?

We’re talking everything from podcasts to photography, documentary-making to the direction across audio and visual content.

Importantly, this will focus on content that’s out to do a job and send a message so we’re also focusing on storytelling and spreading the word.

Why is it a future-proof career?

We don’t know what jobs are going to be about in 2030 but no matter what, the robots can’t recreate ‘creativity’. That’s why time and time again, creativity is the skill most needed in jobs of the future. Imagining and creating something...that’s 100% human being and why creative content is here to stay.

Why should you work in the content sector?

There are no two ways around it, 2020 and coronavirus hit the creative sector bad but through it all, content has remained king. From Netflix to YouTube, content streaming is bigger than ever and brands are looking to use short-form content to reach people on social media platforms like TikTok. Creative content ain’t going anywhere so you should get involved.

What can you learn?

  • You’ll learn how to tell a story and tell it well
  • You’ll learn how to use Premiere Pro and Adobe Auction
  • You’ll learn your own creative identity and style and how to pitch that to brands

And you’ll learn it all from some of the biggest names in the biz like GUAP, Engine, and Publicis Production.
