The world that students are exposed to today is influenced greatly by mass media. Students are constantly being bombarded with advertisements, film and television programs all aimed to influence and persuade.
This Mini Unit aims to introduce students to some of the techniques utilised by the above media, in particular Camera Angles, Shots and Movement. Students will also gain an appreciation of the planning and preparation that goes into a simple short music video and then apply this knowledge to create their own storyboard.
By the end of this Mini Unit students will have a better understanding of some of the ‘tricks of the trade’ used by media outlets and therefore be more equipped in to analyse the media they are exposed to and make informed decisions about the world.
To introduce students to the storyboard genre, including techniques that are used by the media.
