This unit will enable students to develop methods and approaches of realising ideas into short fiction film 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 cover topics such as teamwork and team management, consensus decision making, collaborative idea development, production roles and responsibilities and the processes and practices of production management. This will provide the context in which students make a 5-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.
