Technical Production Skills


This module continues the technical learning introduced in year 1. It covers the skills necessary for use of equipment and software towards the production, editing and dissemination of digital content. It is primarily geared towards recording and editing both audio and visual material for Podcasts, radio and the production of short corporate videos. It also focuses on post-production skills and providing competence in the Adobe suite. It is envisioned that this module will also explore emerging technologies such as drone photography and augmented reality.

Much of the technical learning from this module will contribute to the production of content for other modules on this programme.
