Producing screen content



Throughout the Producing Screen Content major, you will explore key areas of storytelling and screenwriting such as story structures, developing characters, action, and genre; screen business including producing, distribution, marketing, and exhibition; and screen culture with a focus on film festivals, audiences and celebrity. You have the opportunity to develop your story concepts and ideas from their initial stages through to a capstone screenwriting project, collaborating with your fellow students through drafting processes to pitch your story for later production.

You will enhance your creative and critical thinking skills through the study of audio-visual language, developments in global screen movements, histories and technologies, and applying these skills and knowledge in practical and experimental projects. Graduates will be prepared to enter the dynamic world of the screen and creative industries as innovative, knowledgeable and collaborative practitioners.
