Master of Film and Digital Image
The Master of Film and Digital Image offers students an education in digital film-making. The degree is coordinated by Dr Stefan Popescu and Assoc. Prof. John di Stefano. Find out more about Stefan's career here.
MFDI students produce a major digital film project in each semester. Projects are written and directed by individual students working in small production teams, and learn how to develop a film project from concept to screen. Students will learn industry standard protocols and techniques involved in film pre-production, production and post-production, including developing story and script, production managing, art direction, cinematography and directing techniques. Students can work in any genre and style and experimentation is encouraged.
MFDI students have the opportunity to develop, write and direct two major film projects. These are supported by practice seminars that provide the technical expertise necessary for utilising the equipment needed for the production process.
Students can choose from a suite of electives designed to support and extend their skills and knowledge of film-making, including digital effects and compositing, editing, animation and sound design, cinematographic performance, scriptwriting and the history of documentary film.
The MFDI is a one-year full time course structured over two semesters that may be undertaken on a part-time basis.
The course is approved for Centrelink student income support. Please contact Centrelink on 13 2490 for further information.
