Filmmaking & Photography

Major

Filmmaking & Photography is studied as a major in the Bachelor of Design Arts. For more information on the degree structure, fees and entry requirements, see our Bachelor of Design Arts.

The Filmmaking & Photography major assists you to develop, edit and refine ideas and visual storytelling skills, across a variety of creative mediums. Commencing with still image, you will learn the practical components of digital photography in studio and location environments.

Expand your creativity by migrating to moving image and filmmaking, working with other creatives to produce live action narrative-based videos and gaining insight into digital visual effects and animation.

Major Details

Our majors are taught through design ‘laboratories’ that replicate the creative studio process used by professionals in creative areas.  The ‘lab’ is where students and mentors collaborate and you will progress your concepts into tangible final design outcomes.

Your labs are designed around different themes so each trimester you might be responding to an industry brief, working on a global project or with a global brand, or generating ideas to solve contemporary issues. Your final ‘lab’ is self-directed and you have the opportunity to work in teams to culminate your graduate exhibition.
