This unit encourages students to focus on developing creative and technical skills, creating 3D motion graphics. Motion Graphics are short graphical animated sequences used throughout visual media, (films, advertising, community campaigns, music videos), and can be informative, literal or abstract. Students analyse and assess selected case studies to gain an understanding of effective motion graphics. They develop folio work using their own graphics, animation and compositing techniques.
