In this subject students complete an individual original short project in film, video, television, online, sound, radio, performance and installation or multi-platform or via taking significant creative crew roles on a number of projects agreed by your lecturer or by working in groups of two or three to make one original short project. The completed project should demonstrate the student's advanced professional skills and creative expertise. The project must be successfully completed during the session, although it may have been developed and commenced during the Research and Development subject or equivalent Scriptwriting subject. It must be feasible to be produced within the resources available both through UTS and those provided by the student from outside UTS. The proposed project must be approved by your lecturer. Students are required to submit critical documentation (approximately 3000 words) of their research, production development and production process to accompany the final project. This documentation should demonstrate the student's critical relationship to their media production practice. This subject differs from the Research and Development subject in that it is expected that the completed project work is conceptually and creatively challenging. The production and/or post-production process should be considerably more demanding and the resulting project should show evidence of the student as a media arts program maker. The subject is conducted by class and individual supervision by your lecturer.
