This module provides an overview and a continuation of methodological research practices for film and media. Research skills and tools are developed in order to prepare the students’ final written theses, technical reports, feature film packages, and other final productions. Students will continue to develop both their collective projects and individual theses, and the module also consists of common public evaluation sessions, and individual tutoring that focuses on deepening the research aspect of their works. This will lead to thesis statements that are useful in constructing the research. Lectures and sessions concern the broad historical scope of moving image media, and explore ways in which different media technologies present distinct challenges and possibilities for filmmakers. The main idea is to develop the structuring of the final works through mentoring sessions, in order to further refine and improve the evidence and argumentative nature of the final products. Students will demonstrate an awareness of the range of issues surrounding the creation of each research topic, and take these into account when planning and carrying out their research. Supervision guidance will be given throughout the process of researching, planning, and finalizing their collective and individual products.
