In this studio, students build on 54405 Studio: Narrative Investigations in Animation, gaining a greater understanding of the performative aspects of animation through the closer study of behaviour, intention and gesture. Students explore ways of constructing narratives that challenge conventions of mainstream animation production and reception. Students focus on social impact and the use of allegory and visual metaphor as key components in animation storytelling. This subject builds critical thinking, production design, performativity, sound design and professional practice skills. Students are encouraged to experiment with form in the visualisation of story by engaging with hybrid work practices that incorporate material and digital technologies.
