Prerequisite: None

Based on traditional methods, this class will provide you with a range of techniques and a broad understanding of the essential principles of animation. Explore the unique properties of animation, while also developing critical, conceptual and practical abilities appropriate for expanding your production skills.

With an emphasis on animation by hand, you will gain a broader perspective on the diverse range of media and techniques available to creators, and how they can be developed either as stand-alone animations or as an adjunct to a larger work, such as a film, game, interactive website or app. Although not a prerequisite, this subject is a valuable lead-in to 2D Animation, which deals with digital animation techniques.

Prerequisite: None

A follow-up to Design Principles, this subject encourages you to develop conceptual ideas and figure out your own responses to design issues. Using a range of media to produce a significant, coherent body of design work, you will critique both your own material and that of your fellow students. Interacting with discussion forums and blogs will help develop your understanding of the role of constructive criticism both in informing your own work and in strengthening and broadening the quality of your final materials.

Along with experimentation in the development phase, this will also help you to develop your own voice – a personal brand you will diversify by varying and enhancing key design elements. In addition, we will concentrate on honing your technical design skills. While in large part a practical subject, with a focus on creating completed work, there is an ongoing theoretical component that expands on Design Principles. We will continue to look at the importance of colour, media and fonts in the elaboration of completed work, and explore the art of professional designers.

As part of that process, there are typically one or two field trips to engage with art/design. While not essential, familiarity with Photoshop and Illustrator (taught in the subject Digital Images) would be advantageous.

Prerequisite: Foundation Internet

Develop an understanding of the process and skills required to develop a commercial website, and learn the key concepts behind the use of an HTML editor with Dreamweaver.

Throughout most of human history, design work has been done by hand, using raw or refined physical media. But the advent of digital technology has transformed both our understanding and the methods by which design is created. The digital domain is clearly defined by two key typologies: vector images and bitmap images.

While largely practical in form, this subject provides you both with an understanding of the technical differentiation between vector and bitmap, and the opportunity to expand your creative abilities by developing images in both these formats. You will be introduced to Photoshop and Illustrator, learning techniques for creating and enhancing images in both, with an eye towards print, web and even mobile devices.

The subject is split more or less evenly into two sections, learning Photoshop for the first five weeks before switching to Illustrator for the final five. In Photoshop, you’ll learn standard retouching techniques, the complete range of standard tools, proper use of layers, masks and effects and – most importantly – output techniques and settings.

In Illustrator, you’ll learn the effective use of all the standard tools, with the main focus being on the use of pens and brushes, and the manipulation of lines and colours to draw and illustrate. No prior knowledge or use of the software taught is necessary, although this may be advantageous.

Prerequisite: CORE

Two hundred years ago, the dominant medium was the book. Yet, no normal person would have insisted on the need to carry a book with them at all times. Now, the dominant medium is the mobile device. Would you walk out of your house without yours…and if you did, would you feel uncomfortable or out of reach? How did our attitude to media change so much? Simply, Screen Cultures s about exactly what it says. We investigate the use of screen technologies (cinema, television, computers and mobile devices) and how they form, effect and change culture.

We approach this in a chronological form, starting with discussions of what the main mass media are, and covering their origins. Then we focus on specific forms of screen media, seeking to reach an understanding of why and how they play such an important part of our daily lives. Along the way, we broaden and build on the foundation knowledge from Digital Pathways and Reading Cinema, extending your understanding of concepts such as genre and mise-en-scène, narrative, archetypal characters and the monomyth.
