In this course students will develop their keen interest in the media as an industry and its cause and effect relationship with its audience. We will focus on exploring the way a media text can be read in different ways dependent upon the audience’s own experience of the world around them. Within this course we will look at how aspects of a director’s style influence the reading of a text, aspects of genre and how the controls of a media industry reflect the products on the market. A large portion of this course is dedicated to practical film making where students are challenged to plan, design, and produce an 8 minute short film which requires a significant time commitment in Term 1.
