PP1 is a final year media production course that draws together and builds on the multiple media production skills and literacies you have developed over the first two years of the Media Program. It provides you with a sustained interdisciplinary production experience and an opportunity to explore and experiment with emergent storytelling forms.
In 2014 we focus on transmedia storytelling.
“Transmedia storytelling represents a process where integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery channels for the purpose of creating a unified and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally each medium makes its own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story”
Henry Jenkins, Confessions of an Aca-Fan
A weekly two-hour studio-style workshop will be your primary learning site. It will be a space in which course content will be examined and practical work on learning tasks conducted.
Supporting the workshop will be a 4-week ‘flipped’ lectures series containing both readings and audio-visual material. We will also have two extended project presentation presentation sessions where the whole cohort gets together and you will receive feedback and guidance from an industry expert.
Your assessed learning tasks will include a research task, a production project and a reflective learning report. These will be assessed through through a combination of peer moderation, self and tutor assessment
PP1.14 is designed, coordinated and taught by Kyla Brettle with additional contributions and tutorial teaching by Emma Beddows. Transmedia writer, director and producer Jim Shomos will provide feedback on presented student projects and Reuben Stanton will advise on user experience design.
