Screen Media Arts is an introduction to screen media production and screen media concepts for students seeking a comprehensive but contemporary take on International and Australian film and screen media.The approach of this book is to offer both a conceptual and technical introduction to media production in which theory and practice are given equal emphasis. The book is divided into several sections with case histories and production examples drawn from the history of media - photography and photomedia, cinema and video, digital media and the Internet.Significantly the book includes an embedded DVD with production exercises and demos (the DML or digital media lab) and provides the reader with links and many other resources for media production practice. The book also provides historical and conceptual contexts for selected practices andtechniques and key information about the media production industries in Australia.
