Year 13 – Multi-camera techniques
Delivery of this studio based assignment will continue this term. Below is the assignment brief detailing deadlines and evidence required.
Regular delivery will take place on Tuesdays, although there will be the scope for students to do production work outside these times and to book the studio facilities for practice, rehearsal and shooting.
This is the updated brief for Unit 30, Advertising for Television. Please ensure you take the time to work your way through the brief and see me if you need any help or assistance.
For critical analysis, your knowledge will be reflected in assignment work during Easter and Summer terms 2014. All students should make sure that they are recording learning from lessons regularly, so that they are able to easily reference theory work from earlier in the year, and best reflect your individual knowledge. The outcomes from this unit are linked to Units 30 and 45, and several of the outcomes from production and assignment work, especially for advertising will be assessed within these units throughout the year.
Student will learn the process of scriptwriting and the role of the writer in the production process. All students will write a ten page short script based on an original idea.
Once student scripts have been selected, production teams will be chosen to produce 10-minute short films in the second half of the Easter Term. Please note changes have been made to production dates due to BOA Broadcast visit to Malta after half-term.
