“Under Camera Animation” is an animation technique; animating “under the camera” involves the creation of an animation through frame-by-frame imagery, photographing each frame with a stills camera and then combining these photographs into an animated film. The potential processes and materials that can be used to create these animations are broad, and may include drawing, erasure, paper cut-outs, found objects, clay, sand, or paint.
Over the course of the subject students will be introduced to various techniques, materials and skills to create under camera animations. The craft and structure of animation will be considered, as will contemporary and historical under camera techniques, films and film-makers. Students will then apply these understandings and skills in order to develop and create their own “under camera” animated film.
This subject aims:
• to explore and develop skills for drawing and imaging languages pertinent to animation and introduce students to the craft of experimental animation;
• to provide an introduction to the knowledge and skills required to effectively work with the animated image.
Ongoing feedback is provided to students through the subject’s duration via individual and group discussion. Additionally, a progress review will take place midway through the subject (day 2 or 3 of the intensive teaching period), taking into account the following criteria: course engagement; work development.
