  • Objectives
    Available to students who demonstrate potential for, and wish to acquire expertise in the technical and production aspects of Design for the entertainment industry. Structured to provide skills and experience consistent with the growing needs of the entertainment industry. Units are structured to provide training in the principles, techniques and processes required in designing for theatre, film and television. After initial exposure to basic visualisation and research skills, students are confronted, as a learning experience, with challenging design projects including sets, costumes, millinery, make‑up and wigs. These projects precede practical design involvement in Academy productions and professional placement. Students also attend classes in drawing, technical drawing and computer aided design. This VET course is offered by ECU as a Registered Training Organisation under the Australian Quality Training Framework.

    Applicants apply directly to the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Admission is based upon comprehensive interview and the submission of a prescribed project for evaluation. Interviews are normally held in November‑ December. Information relating to interview requirements and procedures is available from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.

    * Units marked with an asterisk are Designated Units . These units are a fundamental course requirement and may only be attempted once unless otherwise determined by Board of Examiners. Where a student is assessed as 'not yet competent' in a Designated Unit that student may, at the discretion of the Board of Examiners, be excluded from the course and the academic progression status of the student shall be excluded .


    Students must attain competency in all units in a given year before progressing to the next year, i.e. successful completion of year one is a prerequisite for entry into year two, and successful completion of year two is a prerequisite for entry into year three.
