There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This subject offers students the opportunity to engage with diverse screenwriting and screen development practices for short form drama, hybrid, animation and immersive media arts work. Students develop creative screen ideas with reference to industry-based models, 'indie', alternative, micro-budget, and emerging media models. In this context they explore notions of structure, storytelling and character and improve their ability to read, critique and script-edit their own work and that of their peers. Students gain skills in project research, visualisation and utilising production within the development process including idea prototyping and proof of concept media using image or sound. This subject includes work with aspects of visual style and mise-en-scène, in the context of screenwriting and development. Projects have the potential to be produced within related subjects of the degree.
