This unit examines how the practices of film and television production tell stories on screens. It will cover a number of different approaches to structuring screen stories including acts, beats, sequences, and character development. It will also explore how the decisions made in cinematography, lighting, mise-en-scène, picture editing, and sound design relate to narrative structure, form and style. Focus is on the key concepts and language through which ideas and decisions are communicated in film and television production practice. By the end of the unit, students will be able to identify the choices film and television practitioners are making in their work, how these choices create the story and how to effectively communicate these decisions in their own practice.
