Anti-requisite(s): 82221 Context: Introduction to 3D and 2D Hybrid Animation


This subject introduces students to theories and best practices for 3D CGI animation.

54409 is a skill-based subject that uses industry-standard software, focusing on understanding the basic technical fundamentals and processes of creating animation. Students continue to build upon, and develop, the 12 principles of animation studied in 54406, bringing their practice from one medium to another. Translating the drawn aesthetic of 2D, one that is not bound by real 3D space, into the 3D digital environment, challenges students to adapt to new ways of working while further developing their fundamental animation skills, essential in the creation of nuanced and believable, 3D character animation.

Students continue to use Shotgrid and broaden their fundamental skillset and knowledge of professional practices.
