Description In this unit students produce projects that were planned and developed in the previous unit, Screen Media: Capstone Development. This unit provides the opportunity for students to consolidate theoretical knowledge and practise-based skills acquired throughout their course to produce a substantial screen media project. Students may choose to take on a leadership role such as producer or director, or students may choose develop their skills targeted to their own area of interest. This may involve a specific production area or crew role which may be undertaken on more than one project. Students will also produce an online portfolio featuring key achievements made throughout the course, for the purpose of enhancing graduate employment prospects.
