Year 11 Media Arts
Unit 1 Social Awareness
Social Awareness Campaigns.
During the first term of this year we explored a range of social and cultural issues. These included themes around gun ownership, child marriage, driving habits and domestic violence. We also deconstructed a range of controversial fashion advertisements in relation to the sexualization and exploitation of children and the role fashion labels play in perpetuating stereotypes of gender.
In addition, we have been learning to use Photoshop so that we have the skills required to complete our major piece of assessment, the creation of a social awareness campaign of your own design.

Unit 2 Film Craft
Storytelling and Film techniques will be explored in this unit. We will create a portfolio of short projects which will include chroma keying (green screen), study horror conventions such as jump scares and explore audio skills.
REMINDER: The school has a licence arrangement with Adobe. It is possible to get the Creative Cloud, which includes Photoshop, downloaded to your home computer for around $10.00. Want more information? Send a message via the contact form on the About page.
