In addition to Rebecca, there is another educator you may encounter in FMCS1000. Dr Melanie Robson holds a PhD in film studies and she has taught film and media studies at both UNSW and AFTRS. Her research interests lie broadly in the form and aesthetics of modernist film and television, particularly from America and Europe. In addition to traditional academic publications, Melanie also authors video essays. As the semester progresses you may receive comments, emails and announcements from Melanie in her role as FutureLearn facilitator and FMCS1000 Tutor.
