The Master of Moving Image (MMI) offers you a hands-on education in contemporary moving image production by teaching you how to develop a film project from concept to screen. It is ideal for professionals pursuing a career in the film and digital media sector, and for anyone wishing to engage with contemporary filmmaking and interactive media.
The MMI combines traditional aspects of film production with new directions in the cinematic arts, incorporating new technologies in interactivity, three-dimensional imaging and virtual delivery. You will conceive, develop and produce film projects through learning industry standard protocols and techniques in pre-production, production and post-production. These include story and script development, production management, art direction, cinematography, directing techniques, and the use of new platforms for film output including interactive apps for hand-held devices.
You will be introduced to the history and theory of film and new media, and can choose from a range of electives from across the university including animation, screenwriting, sound design, digital effects, and rich internet applications.
You will have the flexibility to tailor the degree to your preferred pathway, be it research or professional, including the option of undertaking a placement that interfaces directly with the creative industries.
Graduates interlink emergent digital media processes with the core discipline of traditional film-making practice. They have mastery of a core range of critical, conceptual, production and technical skills, and produce a substantial and original moving image project that reflects their creative expertise and knowledge of film and digital media production.
