CUA60615 ADVANCED DIPLOMA OF SCREEN AND MEDIA
Entry Requirements: Successful completion of application interview
Pre-requisites: Successful completion of AFTT’s CUA51015 Diploma of Screen and Media in the industry focus of ACTING
Following the successful completion of AFTT’s Diploma of Screen and Media in the Industry focus of Acting, the student is invited to apply for admission into AFTT’s Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media. Credit transfer is then applied to successful applicants, allowing them to complete one further year of training to be awarded their Advanced Diploma.
AFTT's Advanced Diploma of Screen & Media incorporates AFTT accredited Units of Competency, which makes this Advanced Diploma the only one of its kind in Australia. The 16 units which comprise this course extend the skills and knowledge developed throughout the Diploma and prepare students to enter the industry as independent and highly skilled professional working artists.
Tier 3: Extending the Actor’s process
The aim of Tier 3 is to extend the instrument and craft techniques developed in Tier 1and 2 in order to be applied across Showreel and Heightened Language productions.
Tier 3 begins by applying the skills developed in the Actor as Filmmaker Project to the production of a professional showreel project. These scenes will be shot on location and will form a part of your Industry portfolio in preparation for your graduation.
Core instrumental skills of voice, movement and theatre craft will be further developed to build a robust theatrical stamina in preparation for your Heightened Language performance project.
Tier 4: The Professional Actor at work
Tier 4 allows for the application of the skills and knowledge developed throughout Tiers 1, 2 and 3, to be applied to Professional Projects and productions. This final Tier is a mechanism for the student to step into the industry and bridge the gap between acting school and the professional actor at work.
The graduate play project involves rehearsing with a professional theatre director on a play production to be performed across a season of shows. This project allows the student to navigate their process while working with an external Director who works within industry protocols and expectations.
The final project of the course allows for the application of supporting skills and knowledge in the areas of industry processes, entrepreneurial skills, creativity and innovation to the final project of the course, The Actor as Creator project. This project allows the individual artist to develop their own voice and aesthetic as a creator. The student works on a project of their choosing which may involve, live performance, multi-media or other art forms. These projects are then curated through a submission process, where students adapt and amend their project to fit within a “festival style” on campus arts event.
