Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching Methods, Including their Alignment to LOs
You will develop your skills in writing, directing, producing, cinematography, design or post-production by applying techniques acquired in technical workshops to group exercises (LO 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Through lectures and group exercises, you will explore the application of creative techniques within an advanced knowledge of filmic modes of address and you will acquire a greater understanding of how script, performance and visualisation combine and interact to create narrative meaning (L.O.1, 2, 3, 4, 5). You will further your understanding of sound picture relations by undertaking a sound design project (LO2,4,5).

Embedding of Employability / PDP / Scholarship Skills
You will develop a greater experience and understanding of specialist roles within professional moving image practice. You will acquire advanced skills in cinematography, sound design and post-production. You are expected to display self-motivation and reliability in carrying out individual roles, as well as an ability to work well with other people in a production team.

Assessment (Formative and Summative)
You will submit two assessable group exercises (LO 1,2,3,4,5) along with the accompanying production paperwork to be completed by week 14. Emphasis will be placed on the application of technical skills, the imagination and originality you bring to project briefs, and the professionalism with which you present the production documentation.
You will be assessed on your overall ability to study independently, contribute to group work and collaborate effectively, manage workloads and meet deadlines. Consequently, your attendance and engagement is an important consideration in your overall assessment.
