This year for the first time we are going to spend the two hour Year 3 Convergent TV session on how to script, shoot and produce character-led films. Films that will be a somewhat similar length to your third year project, if it's for TV.

 

The book we will be using will be Videojournalism for the web, by Kurt Lancaster. This book is available in the library, and explores how some newsy TV and web films were put together. 

 

You could take a look at the films before the class. Links for the films:
