In this project you will devise a sequence featuring Visual and special effects, script it, shoot it and design the sound.

You could recover Film and / or TV with this – as long as it meets the stipulations:

  • The final sequence must be up to 5 minutes long
  • You will have devised, tested and implemented a Visual Effects Sequence
  • You will have devised, tested and Implemented a Special Effects Sequence
  • You will have undertaken Pre Production ( for the effects and for the sequence)
  • You will have Directed & Shot the effects sequences
  • You will have edited the effects sequences
  • You will have devised the sound design for the effects sequence (and contributed to the overall sequence)

As we progress through the project, you will set further tasks to do dependent on your chosen direction of study.

You will need to construct a personal plan to show what you are doing and how it fits in with the units you are covering.

So, for example…
