This course extends the professional skill and production outcomes achieved through the pre-requisite courses. It requires high skill level and production abilities that when combined can result in a professionally produced and packaged: television, radio, OB (outside broadcast) or digital arts/animation production.

The course allows students to choose, and specialise in these areas while working with production crews/groups who will be responsible for creating and producing the assessable outcomes. They will do this in conjunction with staff and the co-requisite course (BCA Project B) allowing time and creative input, together with available resources to complete a major group production.

It will prepare students with professional skills and knowledge, and as well, a 'show reel' of work suitable for direct entry into the film, television, radio and multimedia industries.

Major Broadcast Production provides students with an opportunity to produce a high quality production within the broadcast specialty area. It will combine studio (radio, tv and digital arts) and OB (outside broadcast of both radio and tv) and at the same time, allow opportunities for role specialisation suited to the students demonstrated skill and interest. The group production will represent the original work by the student/s, from creative script ideas through to planning and management of all resources necessary to achieve the finished production.
This practice-led course will require demonstrated research applicable to the specific production areas and that results in high quality broadcast programming. Students will actively engage in all aspects of pre-production, production and post-production to bring this about.
