Content

In this unit students investigate the intersections of live action and digital animation techniques through a range of concepts and practical approaches based on industry standards. Students develop hands-on experience in chroma-key (green-screen) studio principles, including techniques for lighting subjects, directing action, and compositing a range of digital media assets for a variety of creative outcomes. Students learn how to animate text for film titles and create visual effects for animation, game design, and live action film practices. The convergence of 2D, 3D and virtual image spaces with live-action content compels students to consider and explore the possibilities of a dynamic contemporary media ecology.
