Bachelor of Screen Arts with Honours - Visual Effects - level 8

The Bachelor of Screen Arts with Honours replaces the Bachelor of Creative Media Production and offers exciting new opportunities for Aotearoa New Zealand’s emerging screen artists.

Gain the skills and creativity to realise your vision across a wide range of screen-based specialisations. This four-year Honours qualification also has an exit point at third year for students who wish to graduate with a Bachelor of Screen Arts.

With an emphasis on production, you’ll take projects through development of initial concepts and narratives to a completed and distributable work. You’ll respond to briefs that combine creative studio practice, storytelling, professional practice and portfolio development, using industry-standard production facilities, studios and labs.

In your second and third years, you will explore your chosen medium in depth, exploring both how it operates and what it means to tell your stories in your way. You will then advance your production skills with media production practices. You’ll learn about media business and the creative economy, and how to evaluate and develop ideas for the marketplace.

In your final year, you will have the chance to develop a year-long collaborative creative project. Your student-led team will work with industry mentors on a real-life client project through the key stages of planning, pre-production, production and post-production.

BSA(Hons) is taught by people who know the industry, including former staff of Weta Digital, Weta Workshop, Park Road Post, TVNZ and the BBC.
