Content

This is a project-based unit. Students both individually and as a group are set tasks of creating and producing a short animation film in response to and framed by a set piece of spoken recorded sound. The unit focuses on the relationship between sound and image, including lip-syncing technique responses to a spoken word recording. This is a real-world application that requires students to acquire and apply knowledge as required by the specific needs of their project. Problems range from creating narrative film ideas, selecting animation styles in keeping with storyline, creating animatics and resolving sync-sound issues related to a character’s mouth movements. Students further enhance their skills in archival research and character development. Use of animation strategies and technologies developed in other animation units are applied in this unit. An important challenge for the project in this unit is to produce a narrative for an occurrence or event for which there is no visual moving image record.
