Screen stories shape the way we think and feel about the world around us. From Netflix to virtual reality, global cinema and film festivals, screen stories are changing the world. The film, television and creative industries are filled with careers for skilled, creative, and adaptable people, and the demand has never been higher. Many opportunities exist both in front of the camera and behind. Technologies to support the industries are developing at a rapid pace changing by whom, how, and when they can be created.

Program Summary
During this program students explore different techniques, technologies and processes used in film and media. They will demonstrate the use of materials, techniques, processes, visual conventions, and technologies to express ideas and convey meaning in their media. They will create their own short films in response to a user need and edit these into a professional production before finishing the day with a presentation of their work.

Taking part in this program, students will collaboratively:

  • Explore the power of images to tell stories when placed in sequence
  • Explore the links between creative and business imperatives
  • Investigate how sound can complement the moving image to engage audiences
  • Bring together ideas and skills in collaborative and industry focused production activities
