Module summary

In this module you will produce, post-produce and deliver for exhibition a screen project, either in single-camera film or multi-camera TV Studio. You will
work under near-professional conditions, pursuing two roles across two different screen disciplines. First a major role in the specific group project - film or
TV - which you have been involved in developing and researching during the previous semester's Film and Television Group Projects: Preproduction
module. Second, a minor role contributing to the production effort of a group from the same student cohort, working in a different medium. By combining
roles in this way you will develop and consolidate insights into a variety of screen production methods, while simultaneously exploring and enhancing your
