Bachelor of Creative Arts (Animation and Motion Capture)
The Bachelor of Creative Arts (Animation and Motion Capture) provides you with creative and analytical skills in all aspects and types of animation and motion capture production. Specialising in 2D animation, 3D animation and/or motion capture, you are able to develop your own interests and skills, as well as gain a broad understanding of moving image, graphic and animation practice. You will explore animation practices such as time lapse, pixilation, 2D stop motion (hand drawn, cut-out, ink on glass, silhouette and cell camera animation), 3D stop motion (claymation, model and object camera animation), computer graphic animation (virtual geometry, 3D modelling and character rigging), and motion capture techniques (motion capture direction, post production and 3D animation pipeline). You will also develop skills in motion graphics, effects and compositing across a range of genres. The degree draws upon the unique resources and infrastructure of the Deakin Motion.Lab, as well as the industry expertise of the Deakin Motion.Lab staff who provide motion capture services to Australian game development and animation companies.
