FILM3105 Alternative Animation (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
This course aims at widening students’ horizon in understanding animation. It offers opportunity for students to experiment with different styles and techniques of animation such as painting, cut-out, stop-motion, puppet model and other haptic techniques without using the conventional key framing approach. It will also review photographic methods and see how digital media can augment traditional methods or replace them. Through individual and group assignments students will explore various tools and techniques while developing their skills of styles, concepts and have better understanding of the possibilities of animation.
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 run, attendance at and active participation in the weekly classes is considered very important and is considered in grade calculations.
