Is this program available
No. One of ways this course achieves its goals comes from
the very rich learning experiences which result from having a small group of creative
people actively discovering, exploring and making things together. Such an environment
fosters support, the exchange of ideas and critical debate. Valuable lessons are
also learnt by observing the production problems confronting others within the
course and creative solutions they have found.
What software do
This program does not teach computer
software, which is constantly changing. Rather the emphasis is on the development
of content. We show students the ways and means of how best to communicate
their ideas to an audience using the art of animation, interactivity and/or networked
media. However, as an outcome of creating published work through a set of assigned
projects students will learn a valuable set of software tools which will assist
them make various kinds of productions.
But to answer this question,
to achieve results students may use Photoshop, Flash, After Effects,
Final Cut Pro, Dreamweaver, Maya, Real-time Games Editors
What equipment do
We use readily
available personal computers and software that our graduates are likely to be able to afford shortly after
entering the industry. These limitations have not prevented our students from
creating astonishing and inventive award-winning work in 2D and 3D using computers.
