The Master of Film and Television is a two year course, with the option to exit after year one with a Graduate Diploma. Entry level into the second year of the Master of Film and Television program is also offered. The course can be undertaken in one of two specialised directing streams: Narrative, or Documentary.
As a practice based course Year One sees students introduced to facets of motion picture production within the chosen specialised stream, at a level which enables them to realise a major exercise in Semester Two to a professional standard. The course is predominantly delivered through workshops, lectures and tutorials.
Students undertake theoretical areas of study that include screenwriting and screen language. Directing students are expected to write, direct and edit their own productions.
In Year Two, a production period will follow directly after First Semester classes. Each directing student focuses on, and assumes responsibility for, writing and directing specific to their chosen strand (both creatively and technically) a substantive major production for completion at a professional level.
