This introductory unit surveys animation’s history and techniques through its screening program. The unit introduces students to a range of moving image and editing programs in order to enact a number of these animation strategies. Production tasks develop skills in the collaborative and individual creative use of digital video cameras for animation through time-lapse, stop-motion and the retrieval and compilation of online images. The aim is to critically assess through practice and theory the suitability of digital manipulation techniques and strategies for contemporary use such as in advertising, film titles, trailers, special effects, short films and web sites.
