Content

The unit will enable students to:

  • develop skills in film and video design, production and teamwork
  • safely and creatively operate film and video production equipment
  • demonstrate an understanding of tone, contrast, perspective and montage
  • design shots and scenes with attention to lighting, camera movement and the relationship between sound and image
  • locate resources that support film and video production including specialist journals, monographs, audio-visual and online publications
  • use appropriate terminology and diagrams to describe and analyse the technical and creative elements of imaginative filmmaking.
Through practical exercises, this unit explores the evocative and denotative power of tone, perspective, montage and transition in both moving image and aural composition. During seminars, camera, microphone, and lighting technique will be practiced in dynamic studio and location situations. By building folios of practical exercises, the student will establish a foundation of skill in film and video production. Folio reports will draw on independent research and help to build the analytical skills necessary to further work in this field.

Assessment

Health and Safety hurdle: Students will be required to attend seminars in the safe use of electrical and mechanical filmmaking equipment, and to pass a test of safe operational competence before embarking on practical assessment tasks for this unit.
