The future is happening now
Digital Media is part of the computer revolution that we
experience daily. It includes the production of software and
programmes for computers, websites, CD Rom's, DVD's, digital
television and global telecoms. Magazines, books and all forms
of advertising use digital media in some stage of their production.
What's it like working in this area?
And what jobs are there?
The industry is still changing and new jobs are being created
all the time. You could work as a programmer, an animator,
graphic artist/illustrator, an operator, designer, project
manager, multimedia developer, interactive artist or a produce
(the UK computer games industry is now bigger that the British
film industry in terms of ecomomic importance). Other opportunities
include writing for the web, online marketing or as a legal
or financial adviser. There is the potential to earn high
salaries but not before you have proved your broad mix of
skills and staying power.
