Content

Sound, Light, Motion is a specialist Film & TV unit that builds upon the skill and knowledge developed in ACF103 Writing with the Camera. The practical work in this unit compliments the analytical work in ACF106 Screen Practices. Students practice storyboarding, pre-production and filming in weekly supervised practical workshops. Camera, microphone, and lighting technique will be practiced in dynamic studio and location situations. The theory behind this work is integrated through independent study using topic guides, readings and tests. Alongside this preparatory work, each student will plan and prepare their own practical assignment: a short digital film with an original multi-layered sound track.

Individual films will be undertaken in teams with each student doing their own lighting design, camerawork, sound recording, multi-track sound design and editing using professional equipment. Students produce and direct their individual films, co-ordinate their production work as a team and perform an assistant production roll on their teammates projects.

A lack of participation in practical class activities will be reflected in the marking for related assessment tasks. Students will be required to demonstrate safe use of electrical and mechanical filmmaking equipment before embarking on practical assessment tasks for this unit.
