Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to construct set elements that are operated through mechanical devices in the screen, media, entertainment and events industries.

Individuals who apply these skills work autonomously in a team environment as they take responsibility for ensuring that mechanical set pieces meet the creative requirements of productions. They may be responsible for supervising others.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Unit Sector

Visual communication – sets

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance Criteria 

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Determine requirements for mechanical sets

1.1 In consultation with relevant colleagues and with reference to production documentation, confirm requirements for mechanical sets

1.2 Discuss construction and safety issues associated with constructing mechanical sets and plan accordingly

1.3 Take budgets and other constraints into account when planning work

1.4 Reach agreement on scope of own work and construction deadlines

1.5 Update construction plans to take account of discussions as required

2. Prepare for construction work

2.1 Select equipment and materials based on the way in which mechanical set pieces are to be used

2.2 Consider different construction options and use those that will enhance the final outcome

2.3 Calculate quantities of required materials, avoiding waste where possible

3. Complete construction work

3.1 Follow construction plans to create mechanical set pieces, ensuring that safety procedures are followed at all times

3.2 Check items produced in terms of durability, quality of finish and suitability for production requirements

3.3 Seek feedback on work in progress and adjust construction techniques as required

3.4 Test operation of completed set pieces according to organisational requirements

3.5 Contribute to evaluations of set construction processes and note ways to improve own work performance

Foundation Skills

This section describes language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills incorporated in the performance criteria that are required for competent performance.

Release 1

This version first released with CUA Creative Arts and Culture Training Package version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • construct set pieces that incorporate the use of mechanical devices for at least one production or event
  • follow safety procedures
  • meet work deadlines
  • work collaboratively.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided for each of the above points at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements the individual must:

  • describe ways in which mechanical set pieces can be used in productions and events
  • describe issues and challenges that typically arise when constructing mechanical sets and suggest ways of addressing them
  • explain the mechanical principles behind the following devices commonly used to construct mechanical set pieces:
  • cables
  • fulcrums
  • levers
  • explain how common mechanical devices can be used to create different effects on stage
  • describe safety issues associated with materials, tools and equipment used to construct mechanical sets.

Assessment Conditions

Assessment must be conducted in a safe environment where evidence gathered demonstrates consistent performance of typical activities experienced in creative arts industry environments. The assessment environment must include access to:

  • equipment, tools and materials used to construct mechanical sets
  • a work area where mechanical set pieces can be constructed safely.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational educational and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
