Creative Arts: Film & Visual Effects
Students who have completed Film & Visual Effects A or B or have completed a media based subject at Stage 1 will have an advantage, but this is not essential.
Students must have achieved a C or better in at least one semester of Stage 1 Film & Visual Effects. Students who have not met this prerequisite will require a meeting with the Learning Area Coordinator or Stage 2 Subject Teacher to ascertain suitability for enrolment in the subject.

Creative Arts: Film & Visual Effects is a subject that focuses on the development of knowledge and understanding as well as research and analysis skills based on practitioners who work in film-based products. Students will then apply this understanding to the creation of their own product, developing a broad range of practical skills. Students will complete a major product, a focused investigation and development of skills. Examples include short films focusing on different genres, abstract video and music videos.
The subject is designed for students who have a keen interest in film and visual effects and requires students to work independently on large products, which follow on from Stage 1 Film & Visual Effects A & B.
Students will be required to complete a film based product of their choice with supporting documentation, an investigation and a practical skills task.
Students will have the opportunity to enter their works in the NMHS Shortcuts Film Festival. More information can be found at http://nmhsshortcuts.weebly.com
Course may involve attending an exhibition or event, which may be at some cost to the students (approximately $40.00).
