Course Description

This course builds upon the content of Entertainment Design and Technology Case Studies I and is comprised of a series of investigative lab projects and visits to local or regional entertainment industry production sites. The course provides the student with opportunities to observe, investigate and experiment with the practical applications of Entertainment Design and Technology. Project work is designed to challenge the student’s understanding, critical thinking, creativity, and problem solving skills with regard to the application and implementation of current entertainment industry systems and methodology. Emphasis is placed upon both departmentalised operations as well as the collaborative teamwork required to mount a small-scale production. Site visits are designed to elaborate upon current industry trends and technology.

Students will have a greater understanding of the application and operation of certain Entertainment Design and Technology systems and methodologies. Students will also have a refined understanding and appreciation for the utilisation of such methods and systems as part of a creative process.
