The Media Production and Analysis General course aims to prepare students for a future in a digital and interconnected world by providing the skills, knowledge and understandings to tell their own stories and interpret the stories of others. Students are encouraged to explore, experiment and interpret their world, reflecting and analysing contemporary life, while understanding that this is done under social, cultural and institutional constraints. Students, as users and creators of media products, consider the important role of audiences and their context. This course focuses on the development of technical skills in the practical process.

This course is made up of 70% production and 30% written. Across year 11 and 12, four units are studied in General Media Production and Analysis. These units are: Mass Media; Point of View; Entertainment and Representation and Reality.

I have really enjoyed studying the General Media Production and Analysis course this year. It is very production focussed, which has allowed me to develop my cinematography and editing skills. Analysing a range of media texts has also been really interesting, and makes us think more consciously about the world around us. I recommend the Media General course to anyone interested in film, as it is interesting, hands on and lots of fun!
