Content

This introductory unit surveys animation’s history and narrative strategies through its screening program and introduces students to moving image and sound editing programs. Production tasks develop skills in the 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 advertising, film titles, trailers, short films and web sites. Students are encouraged to visit local digital art events and animation screenings as part of this process.
