Content
This unit offers a succinct and analytical introduction to the formation of creative video works. Incorporating the diversity of approaches and technologies available for students, the unit establishes the basic working methodologies for the production and dissemination of short video constructions as a global communicative form. The resources and intercommunicative possibilities of the World Wide Web is the focus of this introductory unit. It utilises existing and emerging technologies for the development of collaborative multinational/transcultural productions as well as individual creative works. The unit is highly relevant in promoting a culturally diverse environment in which students live.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) demonstrate the basic working methods of digital video production and web-based dissemination of ideas; (2) enhance the development of communication skills through the production and dissemination of digital video works; (3) demonstrate skills necessary for participating in an evolving global interactive field of communication; (4) develop ethical and responsible creative productions that interact with the global community; and (5) demonstrate proficiently the mechanisms of collaborative interaction and multinational cultural production.
Assessment
Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) collaborative video production; (2) visual analysis/critique; and (3) individual video production. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit except in the case of a bachelor's pass degree student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 overall and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.
