Overview of Assessment

To demonstrate competency in this course you will need to complete the assessment items below to a satisfactory standard.
Assessment will include two projects incorporating a range of digital imaging methods.

Produce a folio of 2 composited photorealistic images employing advanced compositing and visual effects skills.

The folio must contain both a final flattened image for display as well as the digital files with all the working layers in a psd file including the RAW file. The finished files must contain the full range of tones demonstrating appropriate application of processing, enhancement and output techniques.

In addition to the final folio pieces, students are required to prepare & submit concept presentations as well as present progress drafts of the folio piece.

Assessment is ongoing throughout the course. Full assessment briefs will be provided during the course and can be found on MyRMIT.
