If you like avoiding Ads (advertisements) on television maybe this is NOT the course for you. Entrants have to create an advertisement for something they are passionate for. Our school needs a NEW advertisement....

Visual language surrounds us everyday on televisions, computers, phones, ipads and big movie screens. So, let us look at making advertisements, short films or news reports for a news programme to go on them.

For extra inspiration this advertisement was made by our students in 2016:

- To help you organise storyline events in sequence, and to build your understanding of patterns and structures,
- To encourage you to construct your own storyline sequence,
- To get you thinking about how titles and soundtracks can complement the advert.

For added inspiration this ad was played on New Zealand television for a number of years and was made by a 17 year old high school student after he won the Fair Go Ad Awards twice and was then hired by Peter Jackson to make the following ad:
Cameron Duncan would later have LOTR- Return of the King dedicated to him after he succumb to cancer the year that movie was completed.
