Requisite(s): 89200 Design Communication
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



In project work students undertake an original short piece of animation work informed by theoretical study, based on independent research and showing evidence of their professional skills and creative expertise. The project can be in any appropriate form and style of animation production. Students are also required to produce a critical rationale (of approximately 5,000 words) to accompany the project. The animation project is required to demonstrate work of a high standard with the possibility of being publicly exhibited. It must be of a length that can be reasonably completed within the time frame. In this subject, students work with their supervisor to negotiate the feasibility and length of their proposed project and their production schedule. In this first session, students are expected to take their project through research and script revisions to storyboard stage and into pre-production. Students are also expected to make significant progress on their rationale. The subject is conducted by individual supervision and attendance at weekly seminars that offer students the opportunity to present their program ideas, project development and work-in-progress for critical examination. There is also screening and discussion of short media work and the presentation of production case studies relevant to student's own production work.
