About this Unit
From Spring 2015 this unit replaced by 102317 - Visual Effects. This unit explores the art and technology of animation and visual effects design as applied to digital video production and motion graphic design. Students will be introduced to the principles of animation and compositing in order to create effective motion sequences integrated with sound. The unit encourages students to explore the unique properties of animation and digital visual effects production and to experiment with alternative, creative storytelling approaches to this rapidly evolving form of communication. In doing so students will develop critical, conceptual and practical skills within the context of digital animation and visual effects and consider the revolution these emerging technologies have had on the practice of digital media production, and motion design.
