In this, the first of two capstone units, Film, Television and Animation students will develop projects aimed at selection for production in Major Screen Project B. Projects will be between 4 and 8 minutes in duration. They may be short fiction animation or live-action (drama), experimental or documentary films, web-series episodes or TV Studio productions in a format other than drama. This development work takes place with two assessment tasks. The first task is supported with screenings and close analysis which will set some of the narrative, structural and stylistic criteria which students will use in the development of their own individual project ideas. Individual ideas will be developed and refined in student script/concept/animatic editing circles before being developed through to the first draft with development notes and look-book. The second assessment task will refine these ideas through 2nd draft as a script, a one-minute animation, a test TV trailer and a folio of project development work.
