Pre-selection kit requirements
The pre-selection kit comprises:
- Responses to the following questions (maximum 150 words per question):
- Provide an example of some activity you have undertaken that has depended upon a group of people working in a team. Examples may include team sports, work, a committee membership or participation in activities undertaken in a hobby or special interest group or other
- Tell us about any task or project you have carried out yourself without being directly supervised by a teacher, employer, family member or mentor
- Tell us about a verbal presentation you have given (on any topic) and explain how you prepared and what support material you used Tell us what film or video production hardware and or software have you used and why did you use that particular hardware or software.
- Briefly tell us what it is about visual storytelling (as opposed to any other narrative form) that particularly interests you
- Drawing exercise - Attach a three-frame story board evoking the word ‘persuasion’, formatted to fit on an A4 page. Your three drawings* should progressively tell a story.
This story should have a beginning, middle and end and be driven by your understanding of the word ‘persuasion’. It should be easily understood by an audience.
Imagine each frame as a scene in a film and think along the lines of narrative progression. There is to be no dialogue or captioning included in this exercise - it is purely visual narrative. *This is not a test of your drawing skills, stick figures are fine.
You must have successfully completed an Australian Year 12 (or equivalent senior secondary school qualification) with a minimum 50% average (check calculator below).
