demonstrate an understanding of the process of visual media composition through the study, planning, production and delivery of a one-minute practical production project to a specified schedule.
employ analytical, reflective and discursive skills in the collaborative selection and ongoing development of short, visual production projects which employ non conventional shot relations.
-it challenges and unpacks conventional perceptions settled around 'objective' linear continuity-based visual realities and sets about the reconstruction of these realities in compressed, poetic and associational forms of visual representation;
-it should appeal to students who are interested in how we interpret (and differ in interpreting) visual texts.
For production oriented TFTS students, this module offers a diversification of approach to the extent that:
-it consciously addresses the above issues both in terms of production theory and production practice, and this is reflected both in the reading outlined for the module as well as in the equal weighting awarded to theoretically and practically expressed assessed elements.
-it further enables, through this combined theoretical and practical approach, the self-conscious movement by the student from consumer/interpreter of visual images to producer/interpreter of visual images as the module progresses.
This module is at CQFW Level 4
