New course commenced 2013.
The Bachelor of Creative Arts (Film and Television) comprehensively explores the theories, techniques and practices of screen production and screen culture. Film and television are multidisciplinary creative forms, so this course also provides access to the theory and practice of other creative arts including photography, animation and motion capture, drama, dance, visual arts and visual communication design. You can further tailor your own set of skills and knowledge by taking elective units from across the University.
The major discipline of film and television focuses on the development of the creative and analytic skills required for successful, professional and artistic practice. The degree comprises study in many areas including narrative genre and structure, documentary and experimental forms, team and project management, visual language, digital cinematography and editing, sound design, high definition broadcast TV studio production, scriptwriting and short filmmaking. You will be exposed to a range of historical, theoretical and critical approaches to the production, reception and analysis of global screen culture.
The course will prepare you for the opportunities and challenges of the media and creative industries by allowing cross-discipline collaboration, multi-skilling, internships, international study, and study in professional practice and entrepreneurship. The program draws upon the expertise of its staff – who include active film and television producers, and the industry – through special guests and casual academic staff.
Unit fees can be viewed within individual unit descriptions. You can search for a unit using the Unit Search.
