Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching Methods, Including their Alignment to LOs
You will engage with an intensive series of group seminars and individual tutorials to assist you in the conception, research, writing, implementation and completion of fully realised short production projects. (LOs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). By negotiation with the module leader, you will choose to work in one or a combination of specialist individual production roles on these projects. You are expected to take the initiative in terms of carrying out technical and creative research that is specifically related to your project. Individual tutorials assist you in evaluating this research and its practical implications. On completion of the project, you will write a critical reflection on the conceptual, aesthetic, intellectual and practical choices that you have made (LOs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

Embedding of Employability / PDP / Scholarship Skills
The high level of student-centred learning acclimatises you to the demands that industrial filmmaking requires in terms of self-motivation and independent work. You are expected to work well with other people in a production team, to be able to influence and motivate colleagues, and to display professionalism in working to deadlines.

Assessment (Formative and Summative)
You will undertake three elements of assessment during the module. The producer of each project will submit the completed production along with the accompanying paperwork by week 14 (LOs 1,2,3,4,5,6). You will be assessed on the professionalism and technical skill with which you carry out your role or roles on these projects, and the creative imagination and originality you bring to this work. You will submit a research journal (LOs 1,2,3,4,5,6) that is a full and thorough documentation of your research and production processes in week 14. You will write a critical essay (LOs 1,2,3,4,5,6) by week 14 on the conceptual, aesthetic, intellectual and practical choices you have made during the course of t
