Mission & Strategy

The Western Australian Screen Academy (WASA) offers an intensive practical and academically rigorous course in professional screen production at both Bachelor and Masters levels. Entry is competitive with student selection based on portfolios of work in addition to satisfying ECU’s academic entry requirements.

Students pursue a major area of specialisation in producing, directing, screenwriting, cinematography, sound or editing. Coursework includes professional production of six short dramas, documentaries, a web-series, music videos and client-based projects.

WASA collaborates closely with the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA). The program has strong links to the professional industry and makes extensive use of experienced industry mentors. WASA also boasts a unique partnership with Nine Network Australia, including sponsorship of 14 Awards for Excellence, screenings at major cinemas, and student work televised on the Nine network, earning students a broadcast credit.

Students graduate well prepared for professional employment, with a diverse show-reel of production work and a theoretical foundation backed by practical skills in the digital screen industries.
