Anti-requisite(s): 82321 Context: Animation Character


This studio introduces students to the core technical complexities and creative possibilities of 3D computer modelling and rigging. Students engage in a series of in-depth, practical lab-based assignments, designed to help them build fully functioning character assets for 3D animation. Students balance their use of imaginative creative approaches with demonstrating technical competence. The subject approaches the learning of technical disciplines with the same exploratory, open-ended attitude as conceptual projects. To support subsequent studio project, students are introduced to a character design brief.
