M.I.A

MOVING IMAGE ARTS

Moving Image Arts (MIA) was introduced as a new A level to De La Salle College in September 2008.  It is taught through the Art and Design Department and is very much a creative subject.  It is offered at AS and A2 level and is accredited by CCEA. MIA is a vocational A level therefore the learning is essentially done through hands-on practical coursework. 

The moving image is a key driver of the creative industries. The rapid growth of digital media technologies has made the creative industries increasingly accessible and attractive to young people. The impact of these developments is being felt within the classroom, where students are seeking opportunities to learn technical skills and express themselves creatively.

AS course content:

AS 1: Moving Image Arts Creative Production: Foundation Portfolio (70%)

Students must create an original and complete film or animation.

The finished film or animation must be supported by a portfolio of written, illustrated and audio-visual materials that provide evidence of the creative processes and practices undertaken to complete it.

The portfolio must be presented in the following sections:

        Statement of Intentions;

        Pre-Production;

        Pre-Production Exercise;

        Final Product; and

    Evaluation.

The Critical response is the written examination and is worth 30% of AS.

Online exam with unseen moving image clips. (30% of AS 15% of A level)

This exam is conducted online in a computer suite. Students are shown unseen moving image clips and are required to answer a question relating to each of the clips. The moving image clips are in the form of film and/or animation.
