Course Notes

  • Students interested in the Screen & Media course will have the option of choosing 1 of 3 streams:Film and TV Stream, Computer Generated Imaging & Visual Effects (CGI & VFX) or Game Art stream.

  • Film and TV Stream

  • The Film and Television stream equips students with comprehensive production and post-production skills required in today's screen industry. Our training focuses on specific crew roles for on-set and location-based productions via current industry practices, which include:

  • Pre-production: management including budgeting and scheduling, contracts and location management

  • Production: including creative and technical skilling across several roles such as camera, lighting and sound recording

  • Post-production: editing including technical and creative skills regarding telling the story with images and sound design, editing and mixing.

  • Computer Generated Imaging & Visual Effects Stream (CGI & VFX):

  • This stream is for students that want to excel in the field of visual effects and 3D computer animation for television and cinema. It is essentially two courses rolled into one: TV production and 3D computer animation (incorporating Visual Effects). Students are taught the practical and theoretical aspects of the movie and television making process so that they understand where computer-generated imagery fits in the workflow of a production. With a hands-on practical approach by our passionate teaching staff, students get to use industry-standard 2D and 3D software and broadcast-standard hardware.

  • Game Art Stream

  • As a game art student you will learn the skills required of artists in game development. Game artists are chiefly modellers and texturers but also have a broad knowledge of the game development process. This course puts particular emphasis on modelling, texturing, concept development and drawing. Students develop skills and knowledge in these key areas as well as project management, team work, simulations industry and a variety of delivery platforms.

  • *The 3 streams are very different, therefore students cannot swap from a diploma of one stream into the advanced diploma of another stream. Students will need to list their preferred preference when applying to TAFE SA.
