BMA0F360 – Film and Video Project 2

Module code
Module title
Film and Video Project 2
In this module students will negotiate projects which extend their existing knowledge of a particular moving image production. The self-directed nature of this module requires students to determine for themselves the particular field of knowledge they wish to pursue. Through applied research students will advance the refinement and synthesis of a body of work already developed. Students will negotiate their own aims and objectives for the project and also the criteria upon which the work will be assessed.

Learning Outcomes
2.1 Understand an integrated, reflective process for responding to visual situations
- discuss, identify and evaluate issues relevant to the project
- synthesize acquired practical, communication and analytical skills in the
process of responding to visual situations
- individualise a self-critical working process for developing and refining
- demonstrate the structured resolution of a process through the
generation, regeneration, manipulation and refinement of ideas
adopt independent and interdependent methods of working

2.2 Acquire knowledge in developing a project that explores a specialist area of Moving Image
- develop a project that extends knowledge attained in previous projects
- develop additional performances and assessment criteria
- develop and implement a production plan
- draw a timeline to address deadlines and time-management
- advance procedural knowledge, skills and techniques particular to a
- selected field of practice
- produce a body of work consistent with current norms in practice and in
- discourse of its domain

2.3 Understand self-evaluation of process within the context of professional practice
- extend a design brief with individual, negotiated parameters and criteria
- reflect upon the relationship between theproduction process and the final product
- continuously self-evaluate performances independent of institutional assessment
- initiate and participate in self/peer critiques for ongoing formative assessment
- critically consider, discuss and document self and peer performances for regular summative assessment
- actively participate in and facilitate group and class critiques

2.4 Understand the values, methodologies and strategies which inform current professional practice in moving image
- compare, analyse and evaluate selected texts identifying issues relevant to a specific contemporary practice
- analyse a selection of current works and identify the specific methods used in their production
- compare significant changes in methods of practice and strategies for production relevant to a specific contemporary practice
- develop and implement a strategy for the production of work which explicitly applies the analysis of values from a domain
- evaluate self practice using normative criteria derived from a current domain
- develop critical synergies between representative texts, examples of work and self practice

3.1 Extend an idea
Develop a new aspect or emphasis from a project previously investigated, eg produce a moving image project based on a fully developed script.

3.2 The Production plan
Develop and implement a production plan for a creative role.. This should include a rationale for the production role, a schedule for the three stages of the production: pre- production, production and post-production. Include a selected crew list, cast and location plan. Submit all production planning paperwork for interim assessment.

3.3 Technology roles
Through collaboration with peers, develop a working process to create a high standard of production reflecting contemporary practice.

3.4 Contextual Research
Contextual research into contemporary domain values and constructs.
Case studies and selected readings.
Research strategies and reports.
Teaching and Learning Strategy
Students operate autonomously and self-critically in all aspects of their own work.
Students research open topics to define and write individual briefs.
Students contribute to research and delivery of course content.
Students direct critiques and formative assessment.
Students negotiate the criteria and procedure for summative assessment.
Tutor monitors students' progress through the time management of individual assignments.
