Description

This subject develops students’ understanding of character acting for animation. Character animation is a highly specialised craft and a unique discipline within the field of animation. Students work to develop unique performance and movement languages with pre-rigged characters to prioritise the animation and performance process. There are no designing or modelling tasks in this subject as a character animator’s primary concern is the quality of a character's performance. The subject emphasises the practice of observing and analysing human behaviour and an understanding of the role that articulation, gesture, weight, and timing play in performance animation. The subject builds on students’ fundamental animation skills in character performance. On successful completion of this subject, students attain the skillset to achieve a convincing character acting performance that generates an emotional engagement with an audience.
