Course Description

This course creates a nexus between the practice of drawing and animation, to encourage students to develop a deeper understanding of the developmental and temporal aspects of drawing/mark making and its translation to the moving image. Incorporating both collaborative and individual class projects, this course will also be complimented by a range of lectures, demonstrations and group tutorials.

 


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course provides you with the ability to:

  • Consider and incorporate a wide range of time-based experiments, into a series of short projects
  • Gain confidence in experimental drawing processes and its relationship to the moving image
  • Critically discuss your own work and the work of others in relation to the key concepts of traditional and contemporary drawing/moving image technologies
  • Utilise appropriate visual language to articulate the conceptual ideas in your work
  • Safely handle photographic and editing tools and processes


Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

 

  • Consider and incorporate a wide range of time-based experiments, into a series of short projects
  • Gain confidence in both observational and conceptual drawing and its relationship to the moving image.
