Return to Film and TV

The Film & TV department, part of the School of Visual Communication, has provided me with 3 Briefs (read: assignments) to be completed over the next 5 weeks !

Produce 30 seconds of pictures and sounds that represent what 'Sunday' means to you.
It would be too easy to wander the streets with a camcorder so the creative challenge is to use another medium. This means acquiring moving images on video are banned. Whatever images you create will be transferred onto video, edited and a soundtrack of your choosing will be added. You will have to negotiate, plan and organise how much edit time you will require in order to have your work completed by the deadline; March 15th 2006 at 12.00 noon.

Write an analysis (i.e. a deconstruct the elements, describe the decisions made, etc in a work) of a television programme or film that you have recently watched [200 words maximum].
Pay particular attention to the way the piece is shot, edited, th characterisation and how they are portrayed, and how the story is structured. Please have your analysis typed and provide a word count. Your work has to be completed before the deadline; March 15th 2006 at 12.00 noon.

Write a presentation selling yourself.
We will not ask you to present it, but if you were, the presentation has to last 30 seconds. So this does not mean 25 seconds or 35 seconds! In television we usually average out spoken words to be three every second so you have approximately 90 words to write. I don't want to hear about your skills, I want to hear about your abilities and aptitudes (i.e. ways of doing things; being bossy, being organized). These are for living life and not just for working in the medium of moving image. Have your work completed before the deadline; March 15th 2006 at 12.00 noon.

Ooofff, better start early on ;o)
