This unit examines the global, historical and cultural context and practice of small-scale independent film production of the kind that students can engage in when they graduate.

Building on critical skills acquired by all students in AF104 Moving Pictures: Screening Film History, students will be challenged in this unit by the unconventional processes, styles, forms and presentation methods of experimental film and video art. A set of approaches will be introduced to enable analytic research and creative practice.

Students will undertake directed research into an aspect of screen-based art and will develop a project proposal of their own. Each student will make an innovative short production. All students will hone basic production skills learnt in ACF103 Writing with the Camera and ACF202 Documentary Production Practice by doing their own camerawork, sound recording, multi-track sound design and editing.

Assessment tasks incorporate live and online presentation, and providing and synthesising peer feedback.
