In this studio, students build on 82320 Animation Studio: Narrative Investigations, gaining a greater understanding of the performative aspects of animation through the closer study of behaviour, intention and gesture. Students explore ways of constructing narratives that challenge conventions of mainstream animation production and reception. An emphasis is placed on social impact and the use of allegory and visual metaphor as key components in animation storytelling. This subject builds on critical thinking, production design, performativity, sound design and professional practice skills. Students are encouraged to experiment with form in the visualisation of story by engaging with hybrid work practices that incorporate material and digital technologies.
