The Bachelor of Design Arts (Filmmaking & Photography) applies a holistic approach to the creative field of Design from the perspective of visual narrative. Commencing with still images and photography, you will learn the practical components of digital photography in studio and location environments and develop a strong foundation in digital workflow and image correction and composite photography. You will expand your creativity by migrating to moving image and filmmaking; working with actors, producing live action narrative based short films, and gaining an insight into digital visual effects and animation.
Alongside the Major you will undertake units in Design Arts, Contextual studies and Professional Studies that will synergistically take your skills to the next level, both professionally and creatively. You also have the flexibility to include a sub-major within one of the other disciplines to strengthen your perspective.
Students will have access to state of the art facilities and equipment to render and create their stories. Whether it be a studio-based photo shoot with models set against a green screen to then composite to another world in Photoshop, or out on location shooting a narrative based short film on our high end 4k Black Magic cameras, with video post-production workflow in the Adobe Creative Suite, you’ll be challenged and excited by the possibilities.
You will be guided by multi-disciplined tutors who in themselves are creative artists – internationally recognised in their chosen field. Their guidance will be more of a mentorship than a traditional teaching environment, giving you the benefit of the decades of knowledge that they have amassed – experience gained not from a text book, but from the melding of theory, practice, and industry environment.
