This course provides a more expansive insight into the conceptual and visual possibilities of animation. Students will develop a resolved and integrated creative work in animation. In addition to the techniques explored in Animation: creative possibilities, typical areas of investigation at this level include, but are not restricted to, the following processes: character modelling, character rigging, character animation and deformers. These processes may be implemented in a 2D computer animation, stop-frame animation or 3D computer animation, as per student preference. Occupational Health and Safety instruction is included.
 

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
  1. Demonstrate control of techniques, processes, technologies and equipment used in digital animation.
  2. Demonstrate the creative analysis and exploration of materials and processes currently employed in digital animation.
  3. Show a critical awareness and developed understanding of historical and theoretical contexts relevant to digital animation.
  4. Exploit the characteristics of materials and processes in an individual and conceptually developed way.
  5. Demonstrate understanding of the importance of critical and self-reflective practice.
  6. Identify and develop personal topics for individual research.
