This unit of study continues the program of engaged self-directed studio practice established in Screen Arts 4. It focuses on consolidating your own creative practice within the expanded field of moving image and screen based production. You are expected to be able to confidently pursue your own self initiated practice to a standard worthy of public exhibition. This unit focuses on the development of research led enquiry in relation to the critical, ethical and social dimensions of moving image and screen based creative practice. You are expected to display an in-depth understanding of the theoretical concerns and technical underpinnings of screen and sound practices in the context of contemporary art. You work closely with peers and academic staff to develop good communication skills for expressing ideas and discussing work in progress. Through a program of screenings, lectures, one to one tutorials and studio critiques you acquire the skills and confidence necessary to assess, refine and produce a range of artistic outcomes based on a rigorous engagement with ideas surrounding screen arts.
