OverviewThis subject explores creative media arts practices across moving image, audio and participatory forms. It introduces students to relevant media arts histories and contexts in addition to a range of technologies, media practices and production techniques. Each semester is based around a specific theme, such as time, speed, place or memory, which is explored through creative play. Working on creative exercises, students are introduced to core skills and understandings in media arts practice. They gain basic skills in synopsis writing, production planning, content gathering in image and sound, mixing and editing, safety issues, and collaborative work practices. Students publish and reflect on their creative practice online, a process which is continued in subjects throughout the major.
