Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Teaching and learning will take place in practical classes (Los 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) working in groups. Attendance at all classes is vital. Students will be expected to collaborate successfully with their fellow students and contribute to the development of the group’s work on the projects. Moving from the classes students will work on short films in professional conditions with shorter timescales.

You will develop your research and analytical skills and your ability to argue your case to your fellows cogently, respectfully and effectively. You will learn to work well in groups and individually, contributing to the team effort at all times. You will learn a range of skills involved in creating projects in recorded media.

Assessment (formative and summative)
Formative assessment will consider your continual engagement with and contribution to the work of the class (LOs 1,2,3,4,5). Peer assessment will also be used to assess the working relationships you create with your peers (LOs 1,2,3,4,5). Summative assessment for this module will be based on the quality of your work in final screened performances (LOs 1,2,3,4,5).

Research/ teaching linkages: In acquiring the discipline of an organised and structured approach to performance, students are also developing core research skills.

Supporting equality and diversity: The School is committed to helping students achieve their educational potential, regardless of disability.

Internationalisation: If you are an international student, you will be given advice as to the kinds of particular resources available to you.

Description of module content:

Your work in this trimester will consist of working in a simulated professional environment to produce a sustained screen performance. The type and length of the material chosen will vary, and may involve any number of cast members, depending upon the group's and the projects' needs.

The project will be technically, intellectually and emotionally more challenging than those in earlier years. The nature of the role you play will be dependent on the chosen script however your understanding and knowledge of the work will be extended by your increased experience, and your technical, acting vocal and movement skills will be further developed by practice and teaching. You will also learn about working in a professional screen context and understand the integration of different roles and responsibilities in the production of a short film.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module you will be able to:
1. Create and sustain a skilfully judged screen performance, drawing on a range of critical, analytical and practical sources.
2. Successfully develop a performance in a simulated professional recording environment, working collaboratively with qualified professional practitioners.
3. Evidence creative, intelligent and skilful engagement through the medium of performance in responding to a director's interpretation of a text as well as the varying demands of studio or location settings.
4. Demonstrate professional standards and conduct, working in realistic timescales in near-professional circumstances.
5. Respond positively to new processes, and to critically examine intellectual and emotional areas in relation to chosen material.
