Film portfolio (HL) Introduction Students at SL and HL undertake a variety of filmmaking exercises in a range of film production roles in order to fulfill defined filmmaker intentions . They acquire and develop practical skills and techniques through participation in film exercises, experiments and the creation of at least one completed film. Students reflect on how learning has further contributed to their understanding of film production roles and the extent to which their filmmaker intentions were fulfilled. Each student submits a film portfolio for assessment, containing the following. a. Portfolio pages (9 pages maximum: 3 pages maximum per film production role ) and a list of all sources used. b. A film reel (9 minutes maximum: 3 minutes maximum per film production role , including one completed film). TERMINOLOGY Film production roles For this assessment task, students must work in three discrete film production roles selected from the following list. Cinematographer Director Editor Sound Writer One other clearly defined film production role not specified above (see below). The intention of the optional “one other clearly defined film production role ” is to ensure that as new technologies emerge over time, centres that become equipped with appropriate film technologies and expertise can incorporate them into their film courses to further broaden the production experiences of their candidates. This may be any role deemed a creative role within the filmmaking process such as animator, art director, costume designer, production designer, production illustrator or special effects. Film teachers are not expected to teach these optional roles as part of the core syllabus ; however, students who show enthusiasm or aptitude in these areas may wish to explore outside of the more traditional film roles offered. Please note: The “one other clearly defined film production role ” may only count as one of the three film production roles selected for this assessment. The other two roles must come from the prescribed list. Filmmaker intentions

For this assessment task, students are required to identify specific intentions for their work in each chosen film production role . These filmmaker intentions, which are likely to arise from exposure to influences from other films and filmmakers, are intended to lead the process of practical exploration and experimentation in each film production role . Therefore, the filmmaker intentions should be authentic and meaningful personal goals that the student is passionate about fulfilling. Students may or may not necessarily fulfill their stated filmmaker intentions in their production work, and they should be encouraged to reflect on the process of learning in this area.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
