Mode of study
Prerequisites and co-requisites
Students must have passed Filming the Unfilmable 1.
This course is designed to give students further development of an in-depth experience of the creative process. This course builds on the base established in Filming the Unfilmable 1 and requires a more in-depth and critically aware focus. Students expand the techniques, skills and academic considerations present within film literature in order to move into a student/teacher communication within a coaching/mentorship relationship based on individual student needs, topics, creative practice and aesthetic interests.The course uses film text analysis, academic texts drawn from a wide range of sources not only limited to film. Short field trips to art galleries and other non-film creative elements are offered and students are encouraged to view their creative projects through artistic lenses not solely derived or related to film.
