Building on what they learned in DISC101 and DISC201, students develop a coherent short story that can be made in a third-year or fourth-year course. Choosing to focus on a story for a film, animation, game, or other form of interactive media, students will conceive and work to design their overarching theme, the story world, visual design, and characters (live-action or digital). An important feature of the course is collaborative groupwork tasks and feedback, whereby students work together to critique and support each other’s projects. This means that students have the opportunity to collaborate in a peer group to deliver a more fully-developed systemic worldbuilding and storytelling process. The course ends with a shooting script or story design for an animation, game, or fiction film or documentary.
