ARCH 542 - Computer Animation: Design in Motion

An exploration of moviemaking through exercises in computer animation. Approximately five independently developed short animations constitute the work of the semester, culminating in a one- to five-minute long final movie project. It is anticipated that an interdisciplinary group of students admitted to the seminar will bring perspectives from across the visual and design arts. Movie projects may range in creative subject areas. Built and landscape architectural places may be experienced according to our own changing eye point of view, the transformation of light and objects, as well as the movement of other people. Story telling, whether by means of simple character animation or more complex scene description, may related to these contextual aspects of either real or imagined environments. This subject is more exclusively focused than ARCH 545 on animation as a means to creative moviemaking. (Y)
