FILM2035 Fundamentals in Computer Graphics (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
This course is designed to introduce the fundamentals of computer graphics as they apply to arts and design, from both an academic and studio perspective. Both technical and aesthetic issues will be addressed. Aesthetic issues will encompass concepts, composition, appreciation and historical context. Technical topics will include raster and vector imaging, scanning, retouching, printing, animated graphics, and other related topics. The course is based on lectures, demonstration, and a series of workshops which will involve the creation of computer generated images.
The course is organized to maximize hands-on experience and will include in-class critiques, exercises, and work sessions. The critiques will be run as seminar-style discussions, with everyone participating in the critiques and discussions of each student’s work. Because of the way the classes are run, attendance and active participation in the weekly classes is considered very important and is considered in grade calculations.
