The knowledge gained in the first part is now concretised in a specific implementation in the photographic and cinematographic context. Students work out the differences and similarities between the two platforms (film/moving image - photography) and now apply the design possibilities they learned in the first course. The visual transla-tion (framing, colour tonality, light tonality etc.) of a narration is adapted to the platform. These are digital, such as Instagram (portrait) or classic, such as cinema presentation or a photo exhibition, or analogue/digital hybrid, such as AR (Artify app) or VR.

Building on Conception & Production 1, this part focuses on applying the knowledge that has been internalised so far. Students are introduced to Design Thinking as a creative strategy and become familiar with the organic change of different strategies already men-tioned in the previous course with the aim of developing new approaches for solving a problem that culminate in a large-scale concept. Students are now introduced to the production-technical problems involved in implement-ing a concept and become familiar with the various requirements and structures. Processes differ greatly depending on whether it is an exhibition, staging, performance, film or campaign. Creative strategies and tools are again used so as not to sacrifice the quality of the project in the event of compromises in realisation and adjustments. In the end, the students will have gone through the entire process once, from reflection, to problem identification and definition, to the solution approach and its realisation, with a focus on creative idea generation.
