Details for undergraduate courses
  • Level 3 option in the Fine Arts major sequence
  • The area of knowledge for this unit is Design and Creative Arts
  • Category B broadening unit for students
  • Level 3 elective
This unit extends the skills and knowledge acquired in Level 2 and focuses on novel and immersive forms of cinematic experiences. It studies contemporary emerging media that include but are not limited to interactive cinema, virtual and augmented reality (VR&AR), transmedia storytelling, projection mapping, interactive audio; experimental gaming, animation, narrative and documentary film. By engaging in experiential and problem based learning, students will be developing and researching artistic approaches, methodologies and aesthetics that led to the advancements in the world of immersive cinematic experiences. This final year unit enables students to become more independent in their own artistic research, concept development and production, and prepares students for the capstone Advanced Major Project unit in Semester 2.
Students are able to (1) locate your creative work within critical/theoretical, historical and contemporary contexts relevant to film; (2) self-generate modes of creative inquiry using various approaches to support an individualised creative art practice; (3) produce a coherently evolving body of creative work that advances a personal vocabulary and vision; (4) demonstrate advanced technical mastery to articulate your creative work in film; (5) critically evaluate your practice within the relevant contemporary cultural, historical, social and professional contexts through the use of a range of presentation skills; and (6) synthesise critical and analytical thinking effectively in written, oral and creative modes.
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.
