VISUAL NARRATIVE COLLABORATIONS - 2022/3
Module code: DMA3007
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.
Collaboration and teamwork is an essential element of contemporary media production at all levels. This module enables students from a diverse range of programmes including Digital Media Arts, Film and Video, Creative Music Technology, Music, Dance, Theatre to work together to create an interactive video narrative, incorporating live action film, animation, digital effects, performance and/or interactivity. This is a great opportunity to work outside of your comfort zone and learn about other creative arts disciplines through diving into the deep end and making something creatively collaborative in response to an imaginative brief.
Students submit a short personal/professional profile using about.me or similar in order to assist in the formation of suitable cross-disciplinary teams. This is a popular option, so there will be a limit of the number of students able to take the module from each programme. Consultation with Module Convener is welcome.

|Assessment type||Unit of assessment||Weighting|
|Project (Group/Individual/Dissertation)||Group Project Proposal, Individual Commentaries, Group Project Portfolios and Individual Reflection||100|
The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to (i) generate ideas, concepts and proposals in response to a creative brief; (ii) work towards a collaborative and interdisciplinary realisation of the proposal; (iii) evidence the process behind this process; and (iv) manage the interaction of this process in relation to the means available.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
- Group Proposal, Group Project Output Portfolio & Individual Reflective Commentaries (100%)
Formative assessment and feedback is provided specifically at the proposal stage of the project, at which point each group submits a project proposal and group/peer/self-assessments as commentary on the work in progress of themselves and their team. Specific feedback is offered at this stage so that teams can incorporate this into their ongoing work. In addition proposals are presented in class to solicit tutor and peer feedback.
- To establish sound methods of creative collaboration and practical teamwork.
- To develop fluency in collaboration tools, techniques and technologies.
- To develop a viable collaborative project proposal based on a shared idea and bring this to fruition
- To develop and apply appropriate reflective skills

Delivery will be a combination of:-
Short Screenings and Demos
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. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
