- Film Techniques and Digital Effects
|Coordinator(s)||Cate Dowd (email@example.com)|
This unit explores techniques used in feature films and online video, including editing, green screens, digital compositing and innovative techniques, such as motion capture, lighting boxes and mobile vertical screens. It also outlines various methods and tools used in production and for creating digital effects (FX), including modelling, spatial effects, and immersive sound. The unit begins with historical perspectives associated with montage and sound in film and compares scale models used in early science fiction films with contemporary digital techniques. Some film theory is also integrated into the unit to help critically evaluate film techniques and digital effects.
