About this Unit
In 2021 this unit replaced by unit 102828 - Animation and Visual Effects. This unit explores the art and technology of visual effects as applied to digital video production and title design. Students will be introduced to the principles of editing, animation and compositing in order to create effective motion sequences integrated with sound. The unit encourages students to explore the unique properties of digital visual effects production and to experiment with alternative, creative narrative 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 visual effects and consider the revolution these emerging technologies have had on the practice of digital media production.
