CCEA Moving Image Arts Case Study
Moving Image Arts is the study of film language through the process of making short films. It started as a GCE AS pilot in seven schools in Northern Ireland in September 2002. The full GCE was first taught in September 2005. A GCSE in Moving Image Arts will be available for first teaching in September 2009. Both the GCE A Level and the GCSE are vocational courses.
In the online exam, candidates must respond critically to three questions. The questions relate to unseen moving image clips from Hollywood films and world cinema. The objective of the exam is for candidates to analyse and evaluate the conventions of moving image artworks in an unseen context. They must draw on the knowledge and understanding they have developed from their own study and practice.
