In your first year you are introduced to facets of motion picture production within your chosen specialisation, in second year you assume responsibility for the creative and technical production of a major project at a professional level.

The Graduate Diploma of Film and Television is an exit qualification for students who have successfully completed the first 100 points of the course. Applicants holding a Graduate Diploma of Film and Television, or equivalent, may apply for direct entry to Year 2 of the equivalent stream within the course. 

This course can be undertaken in one of two specialised direction streams:

DOCUMENTARY

If you have an enquiring mind and a highly visual outlook then documentary filmmaking is an inspired choice of profession. Documentary at the VCA will challenge you to create critically reflective films that capture a distinct place and time in our society.

NARRATIVE

The Narrative specialisation emphasises the screenwriting, direction and editing of narrative film and television. You are encouraged to be innovative and experimental, explore ideas and develop the expertise to express them to an audience through a visual medium.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

  • Develop advanced, practical filmmaking skills including direction of actors, cinematography, sound recording and editing, production management, assistant directing and other fundamental principles of filmmaking
  • Learn how to research, develop, write and design a narrative or documentary short film
  • Acquire ability to critically and constructively critique your own and peers’ screen production work in the context of the broader history of screen culture
  • Graduate with an industry-standard, narrative or documentary short film.

The Master of Directing for Performance develops your in-depth knowledge and skills of directing and provides a framework to identify and reflect on your own practice as a director, performance-maker, collaborator and researcher. The program opens up a broad range of individual career pathways into contemporary performance practice through directing and performance making, practice-led research, and applied performance in intercultural and community engagement contexts.

The VCA offers a unique environment for you to develop an individual approach to directing live performances and creative leadership in an environment of interdisciplinary and intercultural learning. You will experience a wide range of collaborative opportunities and leadership roles with designers, actors, production teams, writers, dramaturgs and choreographers at the VCA, as well as a range of creative encounters with local, national and international artists, organisations and communities.

The program is delivered through lab-based workshops, seminars, lectures, self-directed exercises, tutorials, practical master classes, and national and international internships. It balances theory and practice across four semesters, to allow for progression from the intensively-taught, skills-based first year, to a more autonomous, project-orientated second year which culminates in an independent, practice-led research performance project or written dissertation. The program actively encourages intercultural and international training and research experiences through fieldwork in the second year of the course.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

  • Develop specialist skills in directing for live performance, including rehearsal processes, dramaturgy, devising, composition and performance making
  • Build collaborative networks from within and beyond the VCA, and gain the knowledge and skills to build future national and international connections through industry placements and internships
  • Understand the interplay between theories and practices of performance direction
  • Learn practical and critical approaches to develop the future of Australian performing arts
  • Be able to creatively and imaginatively engage with textual, visual and performed sources and artworks
  • Become a flexible practitioner, able to work across artistic disciplines and multiple contexts of performance practice
