This course will provide you with a rare opportunity to combine illustration with animation. Through a variety of challenges, you will develop strategies and skills to enable you to successfully cope with a range of visual communication problems and contexts. The course is founded on drawing, developing visual dialogues and generating ideas for highly resolved creative outcomes. Embracing the handmade and the digital, you have access to book binding, etching, screenprinting, typesetting, drawing on film, working with sound, iMovie, Photoshop, InDesign, Final Cut Pro and website development. You will also be introduced to real life situations that you might encounter in professional practice.
