Method of teaching and learning 
The teaching sessions are divided into two components (Lectures and seminars).

A series of lectures will provide the advanced understanding and of specialist skills within a single camera environment and provide the historical and conceptual background to understand the role undertaken.

The practical workshops will focus on film making techniques and grammar from a professional discipline stand point, effective team management within a project environment and advanced application of skills within practical exercises and shoots.

Seminars will focus on reviewing work in progress.

There are only a relatively small number of assessments – this is to allow the student to focus solely on their project, which will become their calling card to industry in a sytegrative educational model.

However, there will be regular and frequent formative assessments. Although these assessments are not graded, students will be expected to satisfy the final year team of tutors in order to progress to the next stage.
Typically, the syllabus for this module will include the following:

Planning and management techniques for short film/television projects

The role of the HoD

Budget: planning and management

Casting calls and contracts

Equipment testing and hires



Read through and rehearsal

The role of art department and props

Legal issues and compliance

Paperwork completion and auditing

The creative entrepreneur

NB During the second half of the module, students will undertake directed study using the time to develop and produce their major project. Lecturers will mentor students in tutorials and by appointment.
