Timetabled Learning Activities Lectures: 6 Seminars (1hr, fortnightly), and 5 online lectures. Workshops: 2 hours per week.
All offerings of this unit include the equivalent of 30 hours of structured learning.
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.
