The Film + Animation area offers a range of courses that build critical, conceptual and technical skills in production and post-production in all genres and gauges, including single-screen and multiple projection. Seminar courses examine film and animation's history through contemporary thought, aesthetic and historical movements and cultural practice.
Whether shooting with the Bolex or 24-frame Panasonic digital camera, editing on the Steenbecks or in the Avid suite, animating images frame-by-frame or projecting two screens side by side, you will work with both traditional and cutting-edge processes. We encourage individual projects, and advanced students are encouraged to finish on to film, enabled by our Oxberry animation stand, JK optical printer, matchback capabilities in digital post and the 16mm developer and contact printer. You also have the option to produce digitally in Final Cut Pro, Pro Tools, Avid and Flash in our individual and group edit suites.
Screenings and visiting artists and critics are a regular part of the semester, providing exposure to a wide variety of contemporary, personal and experimental works.
