Subject Overview:

This subject is an introduction to the practice of digital imaging and explores a variety of digital technologies that have become integral to many contemporary film and other screen industries. It develops skills in the use and application of computer-based graphics that are suitable for WEB publishing and electronic and print reproduction using a variety of industry standard software tools that include Adobe Photoshop, Flash and Dreamweaver. It is a project-based subject that explores digital photography and image manipulation, audio-visual editing and WEB design skills while also evaluating the role played by digitally reliant technologies including computers, mobile phones, 3G technology, ipods, handhelds etc. Examples of digital projects from industry WEBsites, online exhibitions, online film festivals, mixed reality events etc will be critically evaluated in order to gauge the range of approaches and the impact that digital applications can have on the promotion and marketing of screen industries as well as their creative output. Case studies will range from smaller, independent companies to the larger corporate and government-funded institutions.

Assessment: Practical work equivalent to 5000 words comprising an in-class software exercise (20%), a WEBsite (30%), and a major digital project (50%). A minimum 80% attendance at workshops is also expected as a hurdle requirement in order to pass the subject.
