This unit examines the methodologies, creative challenges, and technical demands of film and television drama production. Students analyse a wide range of approaches employed in drama production. By working with professional actors in studio-based drama productions, students explore the creative relationships and tensions between the script, the actor, the director, and the camera. Through working on their own short drama productions, from scripting and pre-production through to filming and post-production, students explore issues of time and rhythm, space and movement, audience engagement, and control of the emotional impact of dramatic visual storytelling.
