SETTING & STAGING PROCESSES

Using industry practices we create a staged scene for animation. Groups are tasked with using a mixture of familiar props and digital technologies and combining them with real world physical principles.

MOVEMENT THROUGH ANIMATION

Students are challenged to analyse and dissect movement and how the body operates. We teach them how to see the world through different eyes what the muscles, skeleton, hair, cloth and shifts of weight convey and how these idea's influence character and story telling.
