CREATIVE PRODUCTION - 2021/2
Module code: FVP3013
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic the University has revised its courses to incorporate the ‘Hybrid Learning Experience’ in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information. The University has changed the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes. Further information on the general principles of hybrid learning can be found at: Hybrid learning experience | University of Surrey.
We have updated key module information regarding the pattern of assessment and overall student workload to inform student module choices. We are currently working on bringing remaining published information up to date to reflect current practice in time for the start of the academic year 2021/22.
This means that some information within the programme and module catalogue will be subject to change. Current students are invited to contact their Programme Leader or Academic Hive with any questions relating to the information available.
This module forms a one of the major components of Level 6 and will involve the student taking a leading role in a creative production and also contributing to other productions being made by other students.
Students can pitch their production ideas and the best ideas selected by students and staff are then produced to form the creative productions. Examples of types of productions include: a drama, factual film, television program or animation. Students can work in groups to produce a professional quality media production but there is also the possibility to complete an individual media piece.
Students will work in professional roles that you would find in a film production or TV production including the production development, planning, cinematography, sound recording, lighting, post production sound, editing, colour grading, visual effects or animation.
Students will present their production plans, achievements and developments in semester 1.
Students will document their progress throughout the year in a journal or blog.

a) A leading role in a production to be agreed in semester 1.

Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration.
