In this subject, students have the opportunity to research and develop their professional skills and creative expertise in media arts program making. Students may choose to develop their professional practice through undertaking specialised technical or production roles on other student projects, or develop and produce a short media project of their own. This work can be then profiled through a resulting show reel or equivalent. As part of this subject all students are also required to research an area of media production and deliver a short research paper. Students also work as producer, cinematographer or sound designer on a film or video project. Students may alternatively choose to complete a short original minor media project in film, video, television, online, sound, radio, performance and installation or multi-platform. The proposed minor project must be approved by the academic adviser. Students are required to submit critical documentation (approximately 1500 words) of their research, production development and production process to accompany the final project or crew role/s undertaken. This documentation should show evidence of the student's research and critical relationship to their media production practice. Students develop a learning contract that is approved by their allocated academic adviser.
