This is a project-based unit in which students undertake a short individual and group animation focusing on character development and lip-sync with a documentary animation focus. The project allows for a combination of 2-D animation techniques of choice (e.g. stop-motion, time-lapse, collage, and puppetry) and the use of software programs of choice (e.g. Final Cut Pro, I-Stopmotion, Flash) to develop complex production pathways for cinema release. The unit particularly emphasises skills in the preparation of professional pre- and post-production scripts and utilises animation storyboards.


Exercises 30%, Research essay 1000 words 25%, Animation project and storyboard 45%
