This subject builds upon skills and competencies learned in 54407 Context: Animation Character and introduces the technical complexities and creative possibilities of character rigging for professional production. Students engage in a series of in-depth, practical lab-based assignments, designed to help them build more complex character assets for digital 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 the subsequent studio project, students are introduced to a character design brief for a narrative project.
