Introduction

In this unit you will develop your media production skills, gain hands-on experience with media equipment, and produce work that will contribute to a portfolio completed over the course of the Media Portfolio units. With technical support, industry mentorship, and academic supervision, you will work on a media project that relates to your specialisation area. You may choose to work independently or in a group, and may work on a single project across the four Media Portfolio units or on a variety of interrelated projects.  The final result will be rolled back across all Media Project units on completion of this HEJ370.
