Media & Cultural Studies Students Debut Short Films

The 2018 Media and Cultural Studies Honours class recently screened their 7-minute short films at the Westville campus’ Television Studios.

For the students, this was their first time venturing into film production, working with camera equipment and editing programmes.

The filmmaking module was spearheaded by lecturer, Dr Anusharani Sewchurran, who wanted to ensure that students were equipped with the necessary skills of film production and organisation. She approached Mr Jasper Cecil from University’s Teaching and Learning Office (UTLO), Mr Abdullah Shariff from the Information and Communications Services (ICS)as well as the Video Production unit to mentor the students.

The students were then exposed to various aspects of putting together a film such as location scouting, lighting, animation, using green screens, recce, copyrighting, budgeting, sound and voice-overs.
