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. The course will focus on two areas; 1) Event Marketing – producing a range of innovative advertising materials & strategies to promote a chosen event; and 2) Short Film-making – producing an original three-minute short film through concept imaging, scripting, filming & editing.  

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.


Criterion-based, individual and group assessment
