Animation 1 (MA2105.01)

Sue Rees

The class will be concerned with animating inanimate objects by stop motion, drawings, and cut out collages. A variety of filmmakers and techniques will be looked at during the course of the semester. Students will be expected to produce a variety of short projects over the first seven weeks based on current affairs, followed by a longer more sustained project based on potentially poems. Students will be instructed in using ‘Dragonframe’ Software, the Multiplane process, rotoscoping and video editing software.

Experimentation with ways animation are presented will be undertaken; projection, web, etc.
