PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The qualification addresses competence for studio and outside broadcasts and film and television production, and single and multi-camera productions. There is a need for qualified learners who can work independently according to a given brief, which they often contribute to, without hands-on operational supervision.

Qualified learners can enhance film and television products through creativity, quality control, suggestions (e.g. regarding shots) and understanding the effect of their decisions on other people in film and television production process. They are capable of complex tasks within their specific contexts, and can make critical decisions in strenuous environment. They can critically evaluate their own area of responsibility within the context of the full process, and can identify problem areas. They understand their role in the overall context and the industry. They can operate the full functionality of equipment/machines, and can do this for a range of equipment/machines. Qualified learners apply their own methods and understand their area sufficiently to contribute to others.

Qualified learners are capable of:
  • Organising and managing information about film or television production activities according to specified requirements.
  • Determining film or television resource requirements for specific production processes.
  • Planning film or television production activities to meet given requirements.
  • Assessing film or television production processes against given quality requirements.
  • Implementing film or television production processes as directed within an area of specialisation.
  • Controlling film or television operations according to specified business principles.

    Rationale:

    This qualification sets the minimum standard for addressing the need for competence in film and television production. Various needs for competence exist in the South African television and film industry. The shortage of competence has resulted in inflated rates, and there is a need for a larger pool of competent practitioners. By achieving this qualification, learners can improve their employment opportunities and upward mobility, and qualified learners start on an equal footing, also as far as remuneration is concerned.

    Target learners are typically from technical, computer, mathematical science or art backgrounds, or have been assisting with camera, lighting, sound, etc. They should have fast reaction times, pay attention to detail, have visual awareness and have physical dexterity. The qualification forms part of a learning pathway that starts with the achievement of a Further Education and Training Certificate: Film and Television Operations (NQF Level 4) and can progress to a National Certificate: Film and Television Management (NQF Level 6). Beyond NQF level 6, the learning pathway requires primarily general management and research competence. Therefore, the achievement of this qualification ensures that learners are competent to produce a specific component of film and television productions, forming the basis for further learning, that is, to manage such productions or components of productions.

    Qualified learners can find employment as camera persons, sound producers, vision controllers, vision mixers, production coordinators/programme production managers, dolly grips, best boy lights, focus pullers, second assistant directors, art department buyers, boom operators, transport captains, unit and location assistants, casting coordinators, extras, content writers for genre scripts, continuity assistants, stunts persons, insert editors, etc.

    By achieving the competence required to qualify, learners are able to contribute to the production of quality film and television products. Quality products can compete internationally, and ensures the economic viability of the industry. In addition, the qualification can ensure that small business owners in the film and television industry to direct their own productions, thus opening entrepreneurship opportunities. Good products contribute to audience appreciation, messages being conveyed effectively and as intended, and improve access to information for the public. The qualification also requires learners to promote safety, health and environment protection in the production process. In general, quality film and television productions have social, educational and economic value for the industry and the viewing public.

    Integrated Assessment:

    The assessment criteria in the unit standards are performance-based, assessing applied competence, rather than only underpinning knowledge, or only skills. The critical cross-field outcomes are also achieved in the unit standards. In addition to the competence assessed to achieve the unit standards, learners must demonstrate that they can achieve the outcomes in an integrated manner, dealing effectively with different and random demands related to occupational and learning contexts, to qualify, and assessment approaches used should be appropriate for assessing applied competence. Integrated assessment is meaningful if there are clear relationships between the purpose statement, exit level outcomes and integrated assessment of this qualification.

    Learners who qualify must be able to integrate concepts, ideas and behaviours across unit standards to achieve the purpose of the qualification. Evidence (as specified in the associated assessment criteria) is required that the learner is able to achieve the exit level outcomes of the qualification as a whole and in an integrated way, and thus its purpose, at the time of the award of the qualification.

    Evidence of integration may be presented by learners when being assessed against the unit standards, and separate assessment for integration may not be necessary. Workplace experience can be recognised when assessing towards this qualification. Integrated assessment should include observable performance as well as the quality of thinking behind such performance. Formative assessment can be employed during learning towards the unit standards and during integration to achieve exit level outcomes, to ensure that integration takes place when summative assessment is employed. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    Countries that are the most active in the film and television industry are India, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Canada, Switzerland, the United Kingdom (UK), Russia and the United States of America (USA). USA and UK programmes separate film from television, and combine television and radio in other programmes. The South African market cannot sustain this separation at the present time, thus this qualification allows for both television and film specialisations, with radio as a separate qualification. In most countries, undergraduate programmes are the entry level.

    The countries that have formal industry and support associations include: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Canada, Chile, China, Croatia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Egypt, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Korea, Lebanon, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Malaysia, Malta, Maroc, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Serbia - Montenegro, Singapore, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, The Netherlands, Ukraine, UK, Uruguay, USA, Venezuela, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe.

    For purposes of international comparison, education and training in film and television production in India, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Canada, Switzerland, the UK, Russia and the USA were selected as they are the leading industries internationally. However, information could only be obtained for India, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and the USA. In addition, Argentina, Brazil and African countries were also selected, as they are considered economic or social equivalents.

    In Brazil entry level programmes are offered over one year. The programmes include learning how to write, direct, shoot and edit own films, and to work in crew positions in films. Very similar to this South African qualification, the aim of the qualification is for learners to find their way into a career as screenwriters, directors, cinematographers, editors or documentary filmmakers, and then choosing a main area from the following: directing, cinematography, post-production, screenwriting or documentary. The most notable difference between this South African and the Brazilian qualification is that the South African qualification does not include documentaries as a separate set of competence and that the Brazilian programmes include acting.

    The entry-level qualification in Kenya is a three year qualification in film and television production, and, therefore, is not the equivalent of this South African qualification. In Ghana learners can attain a Higher Diploma (e.g. National Film and Television Institute), Diploma or Certificate. A one-year Certificate offered by the Academy of Screen Arts includes screenwriting, directing, public speaking/interviewing, acting, 2D animation, film history, film appreciation and analysis, set design, and cinematography. This does not compare with the South Africa qualification, except for being similar to the entrepreneurship elective stream.

    Other African countries that offer film, television and video production undergraduate, graduate and post graduate programmes include Liberia (B.A.), Nigeria (Diploma, Higher Diploma, Postgraduate Diploma, B.A., M.A., Ph.D.), Tanzania (Diploma), Uganda (Diploma), Zambia (Diploma, Certificate, B.A.) and Zimbabwe (Diploma). In Zimbabwe, UNESCO was sponsoring a film and video training project that ran between 4 and 8 weeks, which was also an NQF Level 5 course, but no information regarding the course was available.

    India is said to be the largest film producing country in the world, with around eight hundred films in various languages being made in the country every year. Close to sixty satellite television channels are currently operating in the country. Learning programmes include from 3 month to more than 3 year programmes. The programmes in India also combine film and television competence. Four three month programmes are recognised. There are major differences between the South African qualification and the programmes offered in India. Radio, music, still photography, designing sets, and acting and presenting are included in programmes in India, but are not part of this qualification as the areas of competence are awarded separate qualifications. The learning time is also much shorter than this South African qualification.

    In the USA, television and radio production programmes are combined, and film learning programmes are separate. Most programmes are at undergraduate and graduate level, and one year programmes (usually not accredited) are offered by some providers, focusing more on skills than knowledge components. The one-year programmes usually include entry level competence for 16mm, 35mm and digital filmmaking, acting, cinema studies, screenwriting, film production, casting, producing, sync-sound recording, cinematography, editing and sound design, pre-production, and post-production. The main difference with this qualification is that the South African qualification does not include acting.

    Various qualifications used to be listed on the UK framework for each of the elective components in the South African qualification. For example, learners could attain a qualification in camera operations. There were three qualifications for Film, television and video production, at the equivalent of South African NQF Levels 3, 4 and 5. The UK Level 4 qualification (South African NQF Level 5 equivalent) was very similar to this South African qualification core component and all aspects of the elective component. However, no further information is currently available.

    New Zealand has only one relevant qualification on the framework, at a level below this South African qualification. However, New Zealand Film and Television School and South Seas Film and Television School offer programmes at the equivalent level of and of equivalent duration compared to the South African. The New Zealand Film and Television School programmes compare as follows with this South African qualification:

    New Zealand Film and Television School - South Africa:
  • Understand different film and television genres, write critical analyses, identify key developments, events and people, and the major political and industrial bodies in the NZ industry - Partially embedded.
  • Understand the function and operation of a film production office and a television station, on-set procedures, and the production process from pre- to post-production - NQF Level 4.
  • Understand film camera operation, camera maintenance, filters, lenses/aperture/depth of field calculation, composition and framing, film stocks and sensitometry, light meters, exposure, and the camera crew, the video camera, camera maintenance, and video formats - NQF Level 4 Elective.
  • Understand the characteristics and logic of lighting design and apply a variety of lighting styles, identify equipment and accessories and describe their function, measure light and its application in relation to the lens, the film or video stock - Elective.
  • Understand the processes required to write a synopsis for a screen-play, write a treatment, and further write and develop the script to a draft stage, and to accurately write scripts for different formats - Elective.
  • Understand the function of sound recording equipment and microphones, the operation of sound recording machines, the operation of a boom pole and microphone, the basic principles of acoustics, and the processes involved in accurately synchronising sound and picture on film - NQF Level 4 Elective.
  • Understand the roles and responsibilities of the director during pre-production, production and post-production, the processes involved in breaking down a script into scenes and compiling a shot list, and accurately time a scene in a script to identify the 'on-screen' time that each scene represents - NQF Level 4 Elective.
  • Understand the business processes involved in the financing and production of a film, demonstrate an understanding of the process of positioning a film in the market, demonstrate the ability to write an appropriate proposal for funding, understand the nature and requirements of self-employment in a largely freelance industry - Elective.
  • Understanding the roles and responsibilities of members of the film production office staff and the procedures carried out in the production office, understand and identify the roles and responsibilities of the location manager, the assistant directors and the script supervisor - NQF Level 4.
  • Understand the roles and responsibilities of the designer and the art department crew, and the processes involved in breaking down a script into art department requirements, understand the principles of applying basic make-up for film and television, prepare design plans for a production - NQF Level 4 Elective.
  • Assembling film or video shots as they relate to a script, rough cut the assembled shots and complete a fine cut, compile a film or video master sound track, plot the sound track compilation and mix on a film dubbing chart, understand the processes that film goes through in the laboratory from rushes processing to final print, and the processes involved in video post-production through to final product - Elective.
  • Understand the processes involved in the different systems of animation - Not included.

    The New Zealand programme is more knowledge-based, and do not address all the areas of competence in the South African qualification as it does not include the practical application of skills in all cases.

    This South African qualification differs from other countries' qualifications in structure, with more complex competence required in one area of specialisation for the elective component in the South African qualification. The South African qualification does not include acting competence, as this is handled in a separate qualification.

  • MODERATION OPTIONS 
    Moderation of assessment and accreditation of providers shall be at the discretion of a relevant ETQA as long as it complies with the SAQA requirements. The ETQA is responsible for moderation of learner achievements of learners who meet the requirements of this qualification. Particular moderation and accreditation requirements are:
  • Any institution offering learning that will enable the achievement of this qualification must be accredited as a provider with the relevant ETQA. Providers offering learning towards achievement of any of the unit standards that make up this qualification must also be accredited through the relevant ETQA accredited by SAQA.
  • The ETQA will oversee assessment and moderation of assessment according to their policies and guidelines for assessment and moderation, or in terms of agreements reached around assessment and moderation between the relevant ETQA and other ETQAs and in terms of the moderation guideline detailed here.
  • Moderation must include both internal and external moderation of assessments for the qualification, unless the relevant ETQA policies specify otherwise. Moderation should also encompass achievement of the competence described in Unit Standards as well as the integrated competence described in the qualification.
  • Internal moderation of assessment must take place at the point of assessment with external moderation provided by a relevant ETQA according to the moderation guidelines and the agreed ETQA procedures.
  • Anyone wishing to be assessed against this qualification may apply to be assessed by any assessment agency, assessor or provider institution that is accredited by the relevant ETQA. 

  • CRITERIA FOR THE REGISTRATION OF ASSESSORS 
    Assessment of learner achievements takes place at providers accredited by the relevant ETQA (RSA, 1998b) for the provision of programmes that result in the outcomes specified for this qualification. Anyone assessing a learner or moderating the assessment of a learner against this qualification must be registered as an assessor with the ETQA. Assessors registered with the relevant ETQA must carry out the assessment of learners for the qualification and any of the Unit Standards that make up this qualification.

    To register as an assessor, the following are required:
  • Relevant qualification/s, practical training completed, and/or experience gained in the relevant field at a NQF level above the level of this qualification.
  • Registration as an assessor with the relevant ETQA.

    Assessors should keep the following general principles in mind when designing and conducting assessments:
  • Focus the initial assessment activities on gathering evidence in terms of the main outcomes expressed in the titles of the Unit Standards to ensure assessment is integrated rather than fragmented. The learner must be declared competent in terms of the qualification purpose and exit level outcomes.
  • Where assessment across Unit Standard titles or at Unit Standard title level is unmanageable, then focus assessment around each specific outcome, or groups of specific outcomes. Take special note of the need for integrated assessment.
  • Make sure evidence is gathered across the entire range, wherever it applies.

    In particular, assessors should assess that the learner demonstrates an ability to consider a range of options by:
  • Measuring the quality of the observed practical performance as well as the theory and underpinning knowledge.
  • Using methods that are varied to allow the learner to display thinking and decision making in the demonstration of practical performance.
  • Maintaining a balance between practical performance and theoretical assessment methods to ensure each is measured in accordance with the level of the qualification.
  • Taking into account that the relationship between practical and theoretical components is not fixed, but varies according to the type and level of qualification.

    All assessments should be conducted in line with the following well-documented principles:
  • Appropriate: The method of assessment is suited to the performance being assessed.
  • Fair: The method of assessment does not present any barriers to achievements, which are not related to the evidence.
  • Manage: The methods used make for easily arranged cost-effective assessments that do not unduly interfere with learning.
  • Integrate into work or learning: Evidence collection is integrated into the work or learning process where this is appropriate and feasible.
  • Valid: The assessment focuses on the requirements laid down in the standards; i.e. the assessment is fit for purpose.
  • Direct: The activities in the assessment mirror the conditions of actual performance as close as possible.
  • Authentic: The assessor is satisfied that the work being assessed is attributable to the learner being assessed.
  • Sufficient: The evidence collected establishes that all criteria have been met and that performance to the required Standard can be repeated consistently.
  • Systematic: Planning and recording is sufficiently rigorous to ensure that assessment is fair.
  • Open: Learners can contribute to the planning and accumulation of evidence. Learners for assessment understand the assessment process and the criteria that apply.
  • Consistent: The same assessor would make the same judgement again in similar circumstances. The judgement made is similar than the judgement that would be made by other assessors. 

  • REREGISTRATION HISTORY
