In this subject students critically explore key questions concerning identity, industry practices, innovation and storytelling. They consider a series of theoretically-informed and practice-oriented challenges to initiate transformations towards a more ethical, engaging and vibrant screen industry. Students evaluate policy documents, evidence-based research and industry practices and protocols and apply these to on-set experiences and problem-solving scenarios and activities. They develop skills in designing and negotiating responsible media representation and work practices including gender and Indigenous representation, diverse crew environments and environmentally sustainable productions. Students focus on screen and media arts works designed to encourage audiences to engage in social change, and produce a short video or campaign iterations concerning a relevant ethical, sustainability or social justice issue.
