You’ll experiment with a variety of media processes, including preparatory and post-production film techniques, and in digital character design, storyboarding and narrative. You’ll also develop an understanding of stop frame, Gif and Flash animation, increase your technical skills in photography and learn image editing techniques using leading creative software.
In the second year, we’ll give you the freedom to specialise and deepen your skills by focusing on one of the following: lens-based media, graphic and interface design or illustration, animation, computer-generated arts, or games design. Both years are supported by our cultural theory programme, introducing you to both historic and current contextual topics.
