54413 Context: Experimentations for 3D and Hybrid Animation

Requisite(s): 54411 Context: Design for 3D and Hybrid Animation OR 82027 Context: Design for 3D and Hybrid Animation
Anti-requisite(s): 82028 Context: Experimentations for 3D and Hybrid Animation


The subject consolidates an advanced understanding of production techniques using industry-standard software and contemporary professional work practices. Students work in collaborative teams, developing and testing production 3D assets, refining narratives through storyboarding and groupwork and plan for completing a short 3D, or 3D hybrid animation project that is original and of professional standard. Students learn to develop their pre-visualisation and performance animation skills, from initial boarding and posing to nuanced full character animation. Emphasis is placed upon incorporating higher level production techniques to handle added complexity, planning and testing, automation and controls, precise timing, facial expressions, and physical gesture, working to an advanced understanding of animation principles. Students work with a more advanced level of craft, aesthetic, and technical sensitivity in design and animation storytelling.
