PSSA Definition of Audio Visual:

An Audio Visual (AV) is a compilation of still images, which may include movie/video clips, with an integrated theme or story line where audio, transitions and images are interdependent. An effective sequence will therefore have unity of the various elements, i.e.: the conception, the visuals, the audio, communication and technique. Artistic expression within it can take many forms and is only limited by the author’s imagination and creativity.
