This unit assumes some familiarity with image and video editing software.
Gain an insight and skills with one of the most intriguing and captivating of contemporary art forms. Bringing objects and ideas to life through frame-by-frame animation and compositing has become much more accessible in recent years through digital technology.
Through three short projects you will explore different aspects of the animators palette, using the techniques of stop motion or frame-by-frame animation through to sophisticated compositing software.
One of the best aspects of this unit is a weekly viewing session where the extraordinary depth and variety of the animator's art will be explored.
