Examination including compulsory elements

The fullfilment of learning objectives is examined in the form of a short film project, as well as active discussions in movie and literature seminars. The project involves the development of digital moving images, possibly in interactive form. The project is assessed based on three perspectives; creative content, appropriate design solution and technical quality. The project is presented verbally and submitted digitally.

The course examiner may assess individual students in other ways than what is stated above if there are special reasons for doing so, for example if a student has a decision from Chalmers on educational support due to disability.
