Background information

As part of their ADMT semester-long project, students are given the task to produce a short film of between 5 to 8 minutes long on their interpretation of the theme 'Communication'. They are broken up into groups of 4 to 5 students per team, and have about 12 weeks of lessons (150 minutes per week) to work on it. 

As the performance task is expansive in nature, teams are highly encouraged to adopt role-taking at each of the pre-production, production and post-production stages of their project. At the end of it, teams are required to submit the following: 
  1. A team journal (leveraging on Google Doc platform with shared capabilities) that documents their project workflow and key learning points
  2. An A2-sized movie poster that best represents their short film
  3. The completed short film
To capture their individual learning components, two individual assessment components were included. Firstly, a video critique test session was conducted before the start of the project to scaffold their understanding of what makes a video clip engaging. 

After final submissions of the project deliverables, a peer review survey, conducted on Google Forms, was done to elicit peer responses on how they fair individually, within the team.

Shown in subsequent pages listed at the side are some of the short films that have been nominated for the various categories at the ADMT Short Film Awards. A page of their posters are also included. Do take some time to enjoy them.
