This subject will focus on the theoretical and practical elements involved in film and video production through advanced research and critical discussion with film directors, scriptwriters, artists and practitioners. It will explore contemporary issues in the film industry and new exhibition practices in relation to video installations in exhibition spaces such as the Australian Centre for the Moving Image. Students will gain specialized theoretical grounding in issues relating to the creation, production, funding and exhibition of films 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 filmmaking. This subject will also examine different modes of creation and production in national cinemas with emphasis on Australia and the Pacific. Relationships between global and local film cultures will also be investigated within this subject. 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.
