In this unit students learn fundamental skills and concepts for creating content for moving image production and post-production in film, animation, visual communication, games development, web and other media contexts. Elements of visual effects, sound design and compositing are explored using industry standard software and studio techniques. Students complete a number of exercise tasks including lighting and directing for live-action chroma-key (green screen), animating text, motion tracking and stabilization, colour correction and compositing. Students develop an audio-visual presentation proposal which they submit online, complete a folio of supporting sequences, and an individual creative piece exploring title sequence design. Students are encouraged to develop the folio assignment as a professional showcase demonstrating skills related to their discipline area.
