The Bachelor of Creative Arts (Screen) combines practical training in production with an emphasis on documentary and short film. All students are taught the basics of using equipment and post production, script-writing, film crews and other roles, and are provided with the opportunity to specialise in camera, direction, editing and producing. These topics are combined with a major sequence in Screen and Media, with topics on the aesthetics, history and theories of film, television and digital media.
The Bachelor of Creative Arts (Digital Media) offers a sequence of core digital media production topics. Students then select complementary topics in the areas of screen production, visual arts and/or computer programming. This degree emphasises hands-on projects and the role of creative teams while encouraging students to explore a number of areas such as digital art, web-design, animation, graphic novels or game creation.
