To integrate material from other modules into a major digital media project; to provide you with a platform for autonomous learning within your chosen area of specialism; to develop a self-critical, editorial awareness of one`s own body of work; to present that body of work in a visually impressive, coherent showreel or portfolio; to develop presentation skills.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
You will develop and complete a practical media project that will enable you to demonstrate the skills and knowledge gained during your degree programme. The project production work is of an independent nature, supervised by staff with suitable expertise and reviewed by a project marking committee. The supervisor will observe and assess your project management activities for the duration of production and offer support and guidance where necessary. However, you are expected to learn in a self-sufficient manner and this will include the ability to apply new technical skills as appropriate to your project. If you are required to take supplementary assessment you will repair the deficiency in the original project and an extended written report.
