Course Description

C6087- ADVANCED DIPLOMA OF SCREEN & MEDIA (Screen plan)

This course brings together the skills and knowledge covered in other units and focuses upon the way these must be applied holistically to the realisation of productions.
 

C6087DIGIT- ADVANCED DIPLOMA OF SCREEN & MEDIA (interactive plan)

In semester one, this unit of competency Realise productions CUETEM08B is delivered in the class Design Studio 3. This unit brings together technical and organisations skills in order to realise a range of live productions or events. It is delivered together with Originate and develop concepts BSBCRT501A and Plan and manage film and media pre-production CUFPPM601A.

In semester two, this unit of competency Realise productions CUETEM08B is delivered in the class Design Project 4. It is delivered together with Plan and manage film and media post-production CUFPPM602A.

This unit runs over semester 1 and semester 2 (student driven, with staff support and feedback delivered in class and via online enviromnents). It is designed to give you the opportunity to research and create two individual projects from early conceptual stages, through pre-production to the final completion of the projects. This course is based on a professional studio model and will give you the opportunity to experience situations you are likely to encounter when working in the industry. The course introduces the concepts and practices of project management, which include storyboarding, animatics, schedules, treatments and technical, safety and budgetary requirements.


This is the designated Work Integrated Learning (WIL) course for C6087DIGIT Advanced Diploma of Screen & Media. This course includes a WIL experience in which your knowledge and skills will be applied and assessed in a real or simulated workplace context and where feedback from industry and/or community is integral to your experience.
