Deakin University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00113B

Take a great story and learn to shape it for film, TV or animation. From documentary and short narrative fiction, to more experimental productions, the Bachelor of Film, Television and Animation allows you to develop your own specialist skill set within the dynamic fields of screen production and screen culture. Bring storytelling to the screen through a number of production and post-production roles and practices. You'll also learn the art of storytelling in 2D and access Deakin's 3D animation program. Gaining a broad understanding of moving image, graphic and animation practice, you'll develop clever and creative ways of manipulating and animating images. Working collaboratively with like-minded students on real industry briefs, you'll graduate with a working portfolio. Draw from the expertise of our academic staff, who are active in screen production themselves, and gain knowledge and insights from within the industry. You'll also gain invaluable industry experience by working alongside your creative arts peers on a range of projects, such as broadcasting the Deakin Melbourne Boomers' national basketball competition home games through a live stream on Fox Sports. This course opens up employment opportunities in fictional or factual production for cinema and television - or within the corporate, educational and advertising sectors. You could also work as an animator in the arts or digital content industries.
