Course content

This course allows practitioners in animation to explore opportunities that cross established boundaries or develop in-depth aspects of practice beyond usual levels. The course aims to develop the student's personal philosophies on design with a view to developing a personal area of specialism.

Students work on individual projects and there is also the opportunity to work in groups on 'live' projects for real companies. In industry animation is essentially a group activity and this group work prepares students for their future career.

Students are supported by staff input through a series of design activities, and tutorials during the initial modules that are designed to identify an area of interest that can then be fully explored. The formal presentation of this initial research activity and the conclusions drawn, form the basis of the 'statement of intent' document. Both the practical and theoretical elements will be assessed both during, and at the end of, each module.
