In the first part of the semester you learn to generate strong ideas for TV and digital, with an emphasis on idea and creative strategy – students are taught to communicate a simple message in the most engaging and entertaining way for television. The students are then taken through the process of making a professional TV ad, considering decisions an Art Director has to make during the different production phases.

The course also offers an introduction to After Effects, Final Cut and various film and editing techniques, which allow the students to produce their own TV commercials. In 'Digital Concepts' the students learn to develop concepts for mobile and integrated digital media. They learn to connect digital and offline media and maximize possibilities in earned media and PR, thus gaining a greater understanding of creating fully integrated concepts. Furthermore, the course focuses on the strategic knowledge that the students have developed from the beginning of the semester and offers more in-depth training in the creation of strong integrated concepts for brands.
