Area of Study 2 Media forms in production
Representation, the construction of meaning, distribution, audience engagement, consumption and reception of the media provide the inspiration for students to explore ideas and develop media productions.
Students work in two or more media forms to design and create media exercises or productions that represent concepts covered in Area of Study 1. Students evaluate how the characteristics of their selected media forms, which they design and produce, infuence the representations and construction of the productions.
On completion of this unit the student should be able to use the media production process to design, produce and evaluate media representations for specifed audiences in a range of media forms.
students may elect to specialise in one Media form – However you will still need to produce 2 films –working across different genres. If could be the same topic presented in the genre of Sci fi or fantasy – then the same topic presented as a Western or Horror or drama – or any other genre – or alternatively a different topic but in a different genre
