Course Outline

Students in this course will have access to a fully functioning, multi-camera television studio. Students use state of the art digital SLR cameras.  Video projects are edited using Adobe Creative Suite. 

Unit 3 – Entertainment

Within this broad focus, students will expand their understanding of media languages, learning how codes and conventions are used to construct entertainment media.

Students analyse, view, listen to and interact with interesting and relevant media work. They also generate ideas and learn production skills and processes as they apply their knowledge and creativity in their productions.

Unit 4 – Representation and reality

Students will consider different types of representations and how they relate to the construction of reality within media work.

In contexts related to representation and reality, students analyse, view, listen and interact with a variety of media work. They learn about production controls, constraints and responsibilities. Students continue to develop strategies and production skills when creating their own media work.
