This semester we have 2 modules; Animation for Music Videos, Idents and Title Sequences, and Design Theory. We’re required to produce 3 animations, a music video (with appropriate permission from the artist), a title sequence and an ident (an animated logo) for ourselves. At the same time we will be learning advanced After Effects techniques such as; rotoscoping, green screen, motion tracking, match-moving. For the Design Theory module, we have a wide selection of questions to choose from to write an essay about and create a presentation for. New to Design Theory this year is writing a 1,000 word dissertation proposal for our final year. This is going to allow us to start planning for our dissertations over the summer and begin collecting research and case studies.
It’s going to be another busy semester!
