- Film Techniques and Digital Effects
|Coordinator(s)||Cate Dowd (email@example.com)|
This unit explores techniques used in film, from editing to green screens and digital compositing. It 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 on montage and sound in film, and compares scale models in science fiction films since the 1960s with digital techniques. It then critiques early films that anticipated the digital age and set standards and motifs for contemporary innovations. Digital methods and related theory are then explored to critically evaluate film techniques and digital effects.
