Learning Outcomes

This unit requires the application of basic 3D animation skills to create animations for inclusion in interactive media products, short stand-alone animated sequences and basic games. At this level, animators are working with 3D digital models that have already been created. Animated sequences may include audio components.

Animations are created using a range of industry-current software that is constantly evolving, so it is essential that people working in this area keep up to date with the latest software.

Overview of Assessment

Evidence of the following is essential:

   -  creation of 3D digital animated sequences that:

      *  demonstrate the principles of basic screen, visual design and communication

      *  meet the technical requirements of specific platforms

      *  satisfy the design brief and client requirements

   -  collaborative approach to work

   -  attention to detail

   -  ability to meet production deadlines.
