Unit Overview: A focus on reality television, studio and location photography. This unit will explore the way we edit and alter to create content that we perceive as “real”.

This unit will enable students to deconstruct the ‘non-fiction’ conventions of the reality television and social media formats.

Production Focus: Students further build on their production skills in the creation of their own engaging reality television inspired narratives through the use of ‘realist’ camera skills and the application of complex editing skills, in particular, editing to encourage audience engagement. Students are introduced to Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop and lightroom for editing their production work, as well as filming and capturing images with a selection of manual DSLR Camera settings.
