Students will propose and undertake an individual project that enables them to produce a well developed design concept for a theoretical production resulting in detailed design documentation and rationale. The project can be based in any area within the performing arts, film and television industries and should focus on the area of design that students have become specialised in (eg, set, costume, light, sound, production design). All projects require the approval of the subject coordinator and the availability of a suitable supervisor.

Intended learning outcomes

On successful completion of this subject students should be able to:

  • articulate a well-considered design proposal in a specialist design area in live performance or film and television;
  • develop a detailed design concept in response to an individually negotiated brief;
  • generate industry standard Design documentation relevant to individual project;
  • articulate a design rationale that demonstrates an understanding of a specialist design area within live performance or film and television.
