2010 Semester Programme

Your 2009 Options are here.

From 2010 the Year 12 programme will be in two semesters.

Semester 1: Practical Film Making and Narrative Codes & Conventions used in film.

Semester 2: Making Sense of Film & Media in Society

Semester 1 will concentrate on the mechanics of film-making after a study of the narrative codes & conventions used in films of a specific genre. The work done in the codes & conventions paper will form the basis for the practical film making project in the second half of the semester.

This semester course will not guarantee entry to the year 13 Media Studies Course. If you wish to take Media Studies at year 13 you must enroll in either both semester courses or pass the papers offered in the second semester course.
