ARCH 545 - Digital Moviemaking and Animation


Visual storytelling is the basis for making movies in this hands-on production oriented class. The technology of both computer graphics animation and digital video production are explored. Themes may incorporate short character studies or visual narratives related to the built and natural environment, such as its observable symbols and images, the process of physical and conceptual assembly, transformations of light and form, spatial or formal composition, the movement of people and objects, and similar phenomena that vary over time. Students have the option to use either computer graphics animation or video production. The links between perception, representation, and design are examined within both a historical and a contemporary critical framework. (Y)
