About this Unit
In 2016 this unit replaced by 102406 Screen and Sound Practices 1 & 102407 Screen and Sound Practices 2. This year long unit introduces students to the principles of screen and sound media production with an emphasis on digital video, new media, and short film drama production. Students develop an awareness of screen language through critical reflection upon classic and contemporary cinemas as well as practical exercises. Through a series of specialised modules, students develop their knowledge and skills in media production including camera coverage, visual storytelling, genre, narrative, montage, and sound design and editing. The unit is complemented by technical training in camera, sound and editing software. Students produce a major creative media project under 10 minutes duration.
