Animation

This innovative course focuses on the development of a significant experimental animation production that synthesises research undertaken in areas such as drawing, live-action, drawing on film, under camera manipulation, stop-frame animation, pixilation and sound as art. A strong independent research base will underpin individual practice. Challenging the parameters of film and video production, and identifying new approaches to the notion of art films will be encouraged, as will incorporating experimentation in production and post-production stages.
