Content

This unit follows from and completes creative work carried out in the first trimester unit AMC300 and forms the second half of a two-unit creative research and production module. Students will engage in professional creative production tasks involving (team) management principles, research methodology, project development, pre-production and production management on projects followed through to their realisation. Under staff supervision, students individually or in groups will develop their project from work already carried out in ACM300 (e.g. proposal, conception, research and planning) to full development and presentation in the form of a major project (short film). Peer review is an important part of the professional development of creative arts practitioners. Students are expected to work toward folio standards to produce a short film that could be accepted and screened in a number of industry contexts, such as an animation festival (e.g. MIAF). All students will present their final work in a formal screening context.

Work in progress report: written response to feedback, 1000 words, 20%
