This subject explores the conceptual and practical frameworks that underpin the production of narrative drama for the screen. Students develop a working understanding of mise-en-scene, key crew roles and the techniques and protocols required for effective collaboration on a drama production set. Students are introduced to essential concepts and processes underpinning the way fictional stories are produced. They extend their hands-on production skills through team-based exercises that deepen their understanding of the ways each department (for example, cinematography, production design, editing and sound) contributes to bringing fictional screen works to life.
