Bachelor of Arts (Media & Communication) 2008

Animator and Technical supervisor at Deakin University Motion.Lab, Daniel Skovli believes this type of study is very rare, and to take on this role straight after graduation was an amazing opportunity.

Daniel explained that the variety of topics covered in his course enable him to be involved in all aspects of a motion capture project for animation or biomechanical/scientific purposes'.

Having the ability to study and now work in the largest studio of its kind in Australia and the second largest Motion Capture Studio in the southern Hemisphere, only surpassed by Weta Digital in New Zealand was the key attraction for Daniel, both as a student and more recently as a staff member.

Daniel says, 'After completing a Certificate in Multimedia Design and 3D Design and Animation, from Noroff Institute in Oslo, Norway I wanted to travel. Deakin was the university offered to me as the most relevant'.

'I enjoyed many things about my time as a student and the one experience which has left a lasting impression was the opportunity to collaborate with a multinational marketing company for a promotional animation. My unit lecturer was most supportive and helpful by allowing me to work around assignment deadlines to fit in with their project timeframe'.

In the future Daniel plans to work for one of the larger VFX Studios as an Animator or Motion Capture Artist.
