This unit will enable students to develop methods and approaches of realising ideas into film and video texts and in forming and structuring recorded material into creative works. It will require students to demonstrate understandings of the language of film and video and to locate filmic form and structure within the discourses of genre, style and aesthetic practice.


The unit will begin by covering topics such as teamwork and team management, consensus decision making, collaborative idea development and film production management. This will provide the context in which students will make a 5 to 6 minute production, shot on digital film and post-produced using digital picture and sound editing systems. Through this production, students will be required to review and analyse their working methods and their production, to make judgements about the feedback they receive and to develop appropriate responses.


Written reviews 1300 words 30%, Production accountability peer review 20%, Production planning and execution 50%
