Screen Production I (MCC128)

Organisational Unit Creative Media, Arts and Design
Credit Points 3
Description This is an introductory unit for students who wish to learn how to produce film and television. Students are introduced to a variety of existing production crafts that can be applied within a digital video environment. These include scriptwriting, editing, camera, performance, sound and producing. Students will use these practical creative skills, to produce short videos to develop an understanding of film style, performance and genre.
Timetabled Learning Activities Lectures: 1 hour per week; workshops: 2 hours per week.
Note: Lectures and workshops/tutorials commence in Week 1 of the semester.
Unit Learning Experiences The unit grounds students in the key creative skills required for a wide array of screen work.. The unit has a balance of individual and group based workshop and assessment tasks, which are designed to maximise students experience and engagement with the techniques and discipline of filmmaking.
Other Learning Experiences Although not mandated, the majority of students work in small groups to support each other during their production based assessments - one of which occurs in the TV studio, and the other at locales of their choices. In order to become proficient in the operation of the various location equipment and facilities, students will need to practice outside of contact time.
