Aims and objectives

This unit investigates further the methods and techniques that are used in the development and production of the Major Film and Television Projects. Students will further develop an area specialisation with a focus on articulating their aesthetic approach and creative outcomes. Students will be required to engage in and respond to consultation and feedback at all stages of the production process.
The unit will also explore the development of additional production materials such as extra scenes or content for marketing and distribution purposes. All filmed material will be to industry standard formats and delivery.

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Apply industry standard formatting to the development of industry documents, short documents, drafts and director and producer statements during the production process
2. Apply the chosen area of specialisation within the film making process and develop that specialisation in working on a Major Research Project
3. Propose and articulate an aesthetic approach to the creative outcome of the project that takes into account the specialisation chosen
4. Produce and/or write and direct a major project within a collaborative framework with consultation from industry and academics
5. Develop potential additional ancillary footage to be used in marketing
6. Evaluate the impact of the production within a social, cultural and environmental context
