There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This studio introduces students to the core technical complexities and creative possibilities of 3D computer modelling and rigging. Students are exposed to a series of in-depth, practical lab-based assignments, designed to help them build fully functioning characters for 3D animation.

As much importance is attached to the use of imaginative creative approaches as to demonstrating technical competence. The subject approaches the learning of technical disciplines with the same exploratory, open-ended attitude as conceptual projects.

The outcomes for this subject feed directly into Spring session studio projects, and therefore a character design brief is introduced during the session. Outcomes for this subject do not include 3D animation.
