This module will help students learn the fundamental essence of animation centred on the
twelve basic principles of animation developed by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston of
Disney. Students will learn animation concepts and methods to construct a solid
groundwork for becoming an animation artist.
Students will learn about the most significant principles of composition and how to use
them in their designs. These principles will be used in context by teaching students the
development of mini projects such as online advertising and more.
This module takes students through the various stages in the creation of animation, Pre-production, Production and Post production. In pre production, students will cover conceptualising, script writing, character development, shooting script, camera shots & angles, storyboard, voice recording, prepare audio & sound effects. (All these will include practical experiences). In production students will study animating with storyboard as a guide and addition of background. And finally in post production, students will cover editing, visual effects, clean ups and rendering.
