Content

This unit examines the global, historical and cultural context and practice of small-scale independent screen production for a range of contexts including cinema, small screens, inter-disciplinary performance-based (Theatre/Dance & Drama) or installation (Visual Arts, Photography). This is the kind of practice that students can continue when they graduate.

Students will be challenged in this unit by the unconventional processes, styles, forms and presentation methods of experimental film, video art and inter-disciplinary practice. Approaches will be introduced to enable a multi-layered, analytic and creative engagement between the individual, the media they are working with and listener-viewer-participants.

Students will undertake a research project on innovative screen-based practice and an individual, experimental production project. Through this practical creative work, students hone basic production skills in camerawork, sound recording, multi-track sound design and editing. Assessment tasks incorporate live and online presentation and sharing of formative peer feedback prior to submission.
