|Subject Overview:||This subject will examine the history and development of the film studio system as well as alternative production modes from the independent sector. It will focus on the theoretical and practical elements involved in film and video production through advanced research and critical discussion with artists and practioners. It will explore new exhibition practices in relation to video installations in new exhibition spaces such as the Australian Centre for the Moving Image. Students will gain specialized theoretical grounding in the issues relating to the creation, production, funding and exhibition of film and video installations. In addition, students will focus on the writing and editing of film and video scripts in relation to the pre-production and production stages of film-making. This subject will also examine different modes of creation and production in different national cinemas with emphasis on Australia and the Pacific. Other areas of focus will include: an evaluation of the varied and complex stages in the production and exhibition of a film and video installation, including script development, direction, editing, production, marketing, exhibition, censorship, criticism; the relationship between the history and theory of these processes to contemporary practices; the significance of the historical, cultural and theoretical context of film production and video installation.|
