In this course you will investigate the methods used to produce sophisticated time-based media. This will include the use of advanced motion graphics, composited elements, text and object-based 2D animation and narrative-driven methodologies. You will also apply creative, critical and innovative thinking to solve digital production problems. By synthesising and exploring techniques of production management as part of the time-based media workflow process, you will create rich and diverse motion video projects.
