- Course Outline:
This single semester, collaborative course aims to develop practical, “real world” media skills. There is a strong focus on students developing their own concepts for media products and publishing them.
This course will focus on the following:
- Media Consumption vs Media Production
- Representation of groups and individuals in the Media in New Zealand
- Rules that apply to Media Advertising in New Zealand
- Short Film-making (from original concept to production)
- Short Radio Opinion pieces (Broadcasting)
Media Production develops skills which are useful in a wide variety of media careers. The course improves students’ self-confidence and their ability to organise their work, problem-solve, keep to deadlines and work as part of a team. It also challenges students to engage in critical viewing of media content.
