This course introduces students to professional graphic skills for digital artists based forms through production-focused learning environments. Through a series of workshops, students should begin to develop a solid awareness of application of processes and practices involved in creating graphic-based assets, from conceptualisation, research and planning to production outcomes and uses, including in the broader visual, cultural and commercial contexts across film, television, internet and print. Students will complete a series of authentic assessment tasks based on industry practice in film making that reflect industry aligned skills and current knowledge. This course is designed to contribute to and compliment other practice outcome courses, in particular FSP2006 Documentary Production and FSP2001 Short Film.
