This specialisation introduces you to advertising and promotion, corporate communications, informational and educational media. It will develop your skills in the creation of corporate media projects to international standards, while also reflecting your own culture.
You’ll tell visual stories that either effect social change, or deliver an original visual idea, working collaboratively with not-for-profit community organisations on an approved project to create media content in an authentic, professional environment.
You’ll examine the history, practices and narrative forms of non fiction media texts with a specific focus on documentary film.
You’ll be introduced to national and global cinematic and broadcast industries, and examine historical and contemporary business models and screen audiences. You’ll combine critical studies with creative practice, through action/reflection and production/analysis tasks.
The specialisation includes practical multi-camera and single-camera skills development, and will give you an understanding of studio-based production in a practical, production-oriented environment. You’ll work collaboratively in authentic industry roles to produce a television project.
What's a specialisation?
A specialisation is a set of four units you can choose to complement your course. Most Curtin courses allow you to choose a specialisation from any academic area. Humanities specialisations, like this one, can give a useful balance to a course from business, law, science, engineering or health disciplines. Learn more
