This course develops skills in industry standard software packages for animation and video, as well as basic equipment including cameras, recorders, and lights. As well, the use of facilities such as lighting and recording studios is introduced. Students will begin a process of personal investigation and critical evaluation, linking concepts and processes through individual responses to set projects. Instruction will be through technical classes and project-based assignments. Workplace health and safety (WHS) instruction is an integral part of this course.
