  • Overview

    *Note that this module requires a minumum GPA of 3.00

    This module encourages innovation and enterprise. Students are encouraged to think ‘outside the box’ in terms of content creation and dissemination. They are introduced to non-mainstream approaches to programme making and to content created for the internet and convergent media. Students work in small production groups to develop ideas through brainstorming and research into non-factual subjects. These can include dance, anima- tion, poems, comedy and short dramas. This is a non-genre specific module that encourages high production values, experimentation and the exploration of inventive programme structures for internet platforms and global niche audiences.
