Students develop knowledge and skills across a range of methods to gain a broad understanding of moving image, graphic and animation practice for future specialisation. Students explore animation methods such as time lapse, pixilation, 2D under camera stop motion (hand drawn, cut-out, ink on glass), 3D stop motion (claymation, model and object animation), computer graphic animation (3D CG modelling, character design and rigging, CG lighting and rendering), and motion capture techniques (motion capture direction, post production and integration of motion capture in the 3D animation pipeline). Students will also develop skills in motion graphics, effects and compositing across a range of genres, and study the histories and theories that have shaped contemporary animation and motion capture practices. The degree draws upon the unique resources and infrastructure of the Deakin Motion.Lab, as well as the industry expertise of the Deakin Motion.Lab staff who provide motion capture services to Australian game development and animation companies. The course includes opportunities for internships within local creative industries and participation in international study tours to Japan and the US. The Bachelor of Creative Arts (Animation and Motion Capture) prepares students for Honours and Masters coursework in the discipline, and provides pathways to further study for higher research degrees such as Masters by research and PhD.
