Anti-requisite(s): 82710 Animation Studio: Advanced Animation Practice


This studio operates in tandem with 55501 Studio: Animation Project Pre-production to advance students' understanding of industry production practices. The subject focuses on the development of the professional and specialist skills necessary to thrive in the animation industry. Students complete a simulated commercial studio project and take on professional roles that replicate those in a typical production pipeline.

Students are encouraged to identify and work towards specific animation career paths by focusing on their specialist area (scriptwriting, storyboarding, concept art and production design, character design, editing, production management, animation, effects development, layout, directing, editing, compositing, mastering), developing their skill to the high level required for team-developed animation projects. Students develop their understanding of working within an animation production pipeline and are exposed to how the animation industry works, and how to position themselves in relation to it.

This subject supports the production values and management of the honours project undertaken in Spring session.
