|Studies in ScreenCore||12.5|
Studies in Screen
In this subject the film making process will be investigated. Students will also develop an understanding of history of moving image through the analysis of films, both Australian and international, that have had an impact on the evolution of moving image and in particular from the perspective of design for screen.

|Design Realisation and Collaboration BCore||12.5|
Design Realisation and Collaboration B
In this subject students participate in a series of practical workshops further developing their skills in collaboration and the realisation of their designs. Collaborators may include other designers, directors, cinematographers, choreographers and/or animators. Practical workshops will focus primarily on scenic art skills for finishing sets. Where possible students will get some experience on the set of a VCA film or stage production.

|Design Documentation and Communication BCore||12.5|
Design Documentation and Communication B
In this subject students further develop the skills and techniques for documenting and communicating designs for stage and screen. While building on the skills gained in Design Documentation and Communication A, there will be a particular emphasis on the use of graphics software. Students will also learn how to use these skills for the purpose of pre-visualisation.

|Screen Design Projects ACore||25|
Screen Design Projects A
In this subject students apply and further develop the knowledge and skills needed in designing for screen. The projects will require students develop design concepts that meet a complex set of demands including fitting within budget and time constraints, consideration of OHS and minimalising environmental impact. Where possible, students will perform a role within an Art Department on a VCA short film project.

|Graphics for Stage and ScreenCore||12.5|
Graphics for Stage and Screen
In this subject students with further develop their skills in utilising computer-based graphics software for the purposes of communicating their design concepts as well as producing items for actual use in the actual productions, like printed properties and screen graphics. In a series of lectures and computer lab-based tutorials students learn the principles of graphic design and typography through applying these concepts to practical projects aligned with industry practices.

|Industry Investigation Project ACore||12.5|
Industry Investigation Project A
Students propose and carry out an investigation aimed at gaining an understanding of designing in their specialist area: Live performance or screen-based media. Students are encouraged to undertake a project that enables them to focus on current practices within the field of designing for stage or screen. The investigation may include an internship on a professional production if this aligns with the desired outcomes of the project.

|Screen Design Projects BCore||25|
Screen Design Projects B
In this subject students undertake a major design project. They will be required to put into practice virtually all the skills and knowledge they have developed in the program up to date. The resulting design project will require a high level of creativity, problem-solving, as well as detailed planning including budgeting and scheduling. They will need to outline how they would address OHS and minimalise the environmental impact of their design. Students will propose their own unique project which, where possible, will include collaboration with Film and Television School students by taking on a leadership role in the realisation of an actual film project.
Detailed Information FLTV90016
Through a series of guest lectures and projects students gain a deeper understanding of the industry they are about to enter into as well as how to promote themselves to gain employment in the area of their choice. They will learn about the funding bodies and organisations that support the stage and screen industries and consider how they might utilise these through applying for funding and other forms of support. Students will also prepare a professional portfolio and develop interview skills for the purposes of self-promotion.

|Industry Investigation Project BCore||12.5|
Industry Investigation Project B
Students propose and carry out an investigation aimed at gaining a deeper understanding of new and emerging practices in design in their specialist area: Live performance or screen-based media. The project must be focused on a specific role or practice that is having an impact of the way designers operate in this field. Students are required to share their findings and insights with other students in the form of an oral presentation, written analysis and documentation of the process they undertook during this project. The investigation may include an internship on a professional production if this aligns with the desired outcomes of the project.
