Welcome to SCM!


WELCOME to the launch of Surprisingly Competent Media. This is an arts dedicated site that will bring you the latest arts news, reviews and opinions on all the latest film, TV, games and much more.


We are a group of friends and graduates from Aberystwyth University that had an idea to create a website that will allow us to continue to review and produce content on the arts world. Many involved were part of Aberystwyth Student Media and wished to continue on the style of work produced there. What followed was a group of 11 people coming together to create what you see here today, and long may it continue and grow!

The Vision

We set out with the mindset to create a website under the  overall brand of Surprisingly Competent Media (SCM), with a number of sections that focus on different aspects of the entertainment arts.

This allows us to have a specific areas for each of the groups interests and also allows for much more focus for each section. These will be set up over the coming months and this website will hopefully grow as we produce more and more content in a number of mediums.

Our 4 sections will be as follows:

  1. Film and TV
  2. Music
  3. Games
  4. Niche Corner

These will develop with their own unique features and keep you up to date on all the latest news and upcoming titles, along with reviews and much more!
