In this first subject of the Master of Animation and Visualisation, students expand their creative and technical knowledge and practices. The subject is led by creative and technical supervisors drawn from industry, and mirrors the work practices, procedures and standards of a professional production studio. Students respond to industry-style creative briefs in dedicated teams across the disciplines of: story (development, outlines, storyboards, pre-visualisation); art (concept art, character design, environment design, prop design); asset creation (modelling, rigging, surfacing); performance (animation, camera, layout); postproduction (visual effects, lighting and compositing); technical management (pipeline); and project coordination.

Students also reflect on their professional practice by developing knowledge and skills improvement plans, as well as applying knowledge of culturally appropriate processes and protocols when working for and with Indigenous peoples and communities.
