Post Production in Media Production (SCR501)

Organisational Unit Creative Media, Arts and Design
Credit Points 6
Description Students learn specific and advanced post-production vision and sound skills and knowledge by working alongside industry professionals on a series of short films shot previously at various locations. This is a post-production intensive aimed at immersion in an industry model, and offers insight to post-production projects at a local level.
Unit Learning Outcomes On successful completion of the unit you should be able to:
1. Undertake the professional vision edit for a film, from setting up the project to exporting and archiving.
2. Undertake the professional audio edit for a film, from dialogue editing to final mix.
Timetabled Learning Activities Workshops: Students will be guided through the post-production process in sound and vision by a professional mentor. Each project to be practised on is a professional production. . Workshops sessions are intensive and will consist of several sessions of 3 hours per week, and students are expected to continue post-production on the films in their own time. The complete process of post-production will take around 8 weeks.
Unit Learning Experiences Students will work in a post-production role in order to upskill alongside their industry mentor. The production intensive allows students to experience, among other things, exposure to professional workflow, equipment, and practices not offered in the undergraduate experience. Students will enhance their workplace and communication skills and be introduced to industry processes.
From this unit students will be capable of completing the post-production process on a short film from start to finish in vision or sound.
Assessment Assessment is primarily based on your mentor and tutor monitoring your progress throughout the post-production process. You will be assessed on your ability to take instruction from your mentors, your the interaction you have with your tutor, and also any other individuals involved in the production. You will also be assessed on the final production as ready for screening.
