Media Studies Trip to the British Board of Film Classification

As part of our Media coursework unit we visited the British Board of Film Classification in London on Tuesday 20th January in the hope of gaining some insight into the world of film and age  restriction. The trip was very useful and we were able to have a personal interview with the BBFC Education Officer, Heidi Renton. We got to ask her further questions directly related to our coursework task and we also got the chance to film her response to use in our creative A2 coursework documentary.

I really enjoyed this experience and found it very beneficial as we were not just getting opinions from other sixth       formers and pupils in our school, we also got the chance to meet new people and get a more diverse response to film to use in our coursework.

We also participated in a short briefing from one of few directors at the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification). This was an essential element in our studies as we were luckily allowed to conduct a short interview with the director herself, in which we will use in the making of our documentary for part of our coursework, along with the information gained from interviewing random people in the streets of London purely to show realistic view of society’s opinions.
