With great power comes great responsibility... in this unit students are introduced to the hardware and software of film production. But they are not just releasing their inner tech-head, before we can deliver a data set to a post-production workflow we must consider how best to serve needs of the story.

In a series of workshops, seminars and screenings students will work in groups as they investigate and apply the theory and practice of cinematography, film-editing and sound.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Effectively and safely engage with digital cinema cameras, and film lighting equipment;

2. Analyse cinematographic productions for technique and story content; and

3. Use technical knowledge to analyse a screenplay for logistics and story and develop strategies to support both.
