Content
This unit is designed for students wanting to specialise in the subject of film and learn the basics of cinematography, montage and moving images. In this unit students are offered a creative and analytical introduction to the key methods, means and concepts of working with moving images. This is a practice-based studio unit where students start to work with cameras, sound recording devices and non-linear editing platforms. In a supervised learning environment, students ideate, produce and edit their photo and film essays, documentary and narrative films, animations or video installations. Incorporating the diversity of approaches and technologies available, the unit establishes the basic working methodologies for the production and dissemination of moving images. This is the first unit in the film specialisation for students enrolled in the Fine Arts major.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) discuss the focus of your creative work in relation to the broader field of film; (2) apply creative and critical processes to the development of your ideas and creative work through reflection on your film work; (3) articulate a clear and comprehensive creative concept which is verified during development and resolution; (4) operate sound, camera and editing equipment appropriate for single camera production; and (5) communicate information and ideas effectively in written, oral and creative modes.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) creative work; (2) written work; and (3) oral presentation(s). 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.
