The ability for effectively conveying information through combinations of image, movement and audio is now highly regarded across a range of disparate industries as it offers designers and their clients a range of creative solutions for distilling information for easy delivery and comprehension. Motion Design is a comprehensive, specialist course that aims to develop professional motion design skills for contemporary digital artists through production-focused learning environments. Through a series of workshops, students are introduced to skills and practices involved in creating animation and motion graphics used for film, television, games and the internet. This course combines software learning and research skills in relation to motion design and animation to produce practical outcomes for a specific intended medium.

Students will have the opportunity to develop a solid awareness of processes involved in motion design for production, covering the conceptualisation, research, planning, and production stages to produce relevant outcomes for specific contexts. Students are encouraged to test their conclusions experimentally during workshops through the manipulation of image and audio, and through these investigations students should develop an awareness of the broader visual, cultural and commercial contexts in which motion design can be applied, understood, and used. Students will complete a series of authentic assessment tasks based on contemporary motion design and media-based projects linked to real-world industry training and experiences.
