Level 2 Drama - Knowing the Camera
New Zealand is heading into an era with unprecedented levels of film and television production due to the international perception of New Zealand having world class crews locally and it being a safe place in which to produce products for the screen. Inevitably Drama as a school subject will extend to allow screen performances to be eligible for assessment, just as it currently does for stage performance. For screenwriters, actors, directors and producers, the understanding of the processes, specialist technical production roles and relationships between them is invaluable.
