Project Development (P4060)

30 credits, Level 6

Autumn teaching

This module extends the ideas explored during the first two years of your degree. Having chosen a practice medium on which to focus at the onset of this course, you will engage in the design, research and development for a substantial practice project. The module provides you with master classes from professionals and faculty in the practice field, offers supervision in designing and researching a project, as well as production tutor support in tackling technical and production issues. This practice work will be supported by relevant readings in media theory, aesthetics and production techniques which will be discussed in workshops. The project will be developed further and brought to fruition in the spring/summer module Advanced Media Project.
