Animation & Art
This course will give students an understanding of how various types of animation can be created and incorporated into moving image work. Practical workshops will teach the basic principles and methods of animating drawings, sculptures and digital material with accessible and non-specialist equipment and software. Starting with Stop Motion we will move gradually through 2D and 3D animation as well as exploring how sound can be used to enhance their effect. The remaining sessions will be devoted to students developing their own work through these methods and with individual tutor support gain an understanding of how to translate their ideas through the creation and animation of physical and digital objects.
