Hello world!

1 Mar

In traditional blog style, my first post is introductory.

Hi, My name is Megan ! And I’m in my third year of a B Arts (Media, Culture, Technology/History) degree at UNSW !

This purpose of this specific blog is as a communication and research tool for one of my university courses this semester – the focus being (you guessed it!): Australian Cinema (Film) and Television.

Australian Cinema and Television (like many other countries’ cinema’s) is unique. Whether we realise it or not, Australian Cinema and Television Programs often reflect and depict concerns and themes that are (or have recently become) central to the ‘Australian Narrative/s’.

Course Description from the course outline:

This subject provides a broad overview of the themes, contexts and myths that structure contemporary Australian Cinema and Television by examining the production, techniques and funding of Australian film and television.

There will be more information about the purpose of this blog, and some links to other sites, on the ‘ABOUT’ page.

Enjoy !

(And please comment with relevant opinions and links concerning Australian Cinema and Television; feedback is accepted and appreciated)

Australia: The Land Down Under 🙂
