AFTRS Master of Arts: Screen
AFTRS Master of Arts: Screen, offered on 10 disciplines, is a hands-on learning experience. The two year, full-time degree is designed to fast-track screen professionals into top level positions. Options for specialisation include animation, cinematography, directing, documentary, editing, music, producing, production design, screenwriting and sound. They cover shared subjects, deep discipline learning and cross-disciplinary projects to allow you develop a dynamic and multi-faceted skill-set. An ongoing cycle of practical collaboration help you hone your skills, apply creative thinking to real situations and develop life-long partnerships. The course culminates in a funded, major creative work.
Spotlight on Master of Arts: Screen in Animation
The Master of Arts: Screen in Animation is an industry-based training program where you will focus on digital storytelling skills while working with producers, screenwriters, cinematographers, production designers, editors, sound designers and musicians to create graduate films.
It is designed for students with experience and/or training in a related discipline such as design, visual arts or media arts, or who are already working in the field, and wish to transition into larger team-based productions.
In this course, you will develop animation and hybrid live-action and animation productions. In collaborative workshops, you will develop networking and team-building skills, and have opportunities to experiment with various specialisations across the cinematic arts. This leads to a funded major project in your second year.
Through a program of seminars and practical briefs and projects, you will hone your real-world problem solving, storytelling and collaboration skills and gain knowledge of the other departments and the workflow that defines animation development.
Learning to document and analyse your process through the development of a research project, you will understand how you have been informed by past innovations and now engage with contemporary screen culture. The course concludes with a professional placement. www.aftrs.edu.au
