Over the past few weeks, Illustration students have been hard at work producing various animated short films for the Level 5 Innovation in Illustration module. Working in both 2D and 3D they had to design and create characters contextualised with a backstory and narrative. The students also had to design and create an environment for these characters, which formed a storyline and set for their animations.
A few of the formats students used:
- Traditional Animation. (2D, Cel, Hand Drawn)
- 2D Animation. (Vector-Based)
- 3D Animation. (CGI, Computer Animation)
- Motion Graphics. (Typography, Animated Logos)
- Stop Motion. (Claymation, Cut-Outs)
Illustration lecturer, Frances Moffatt told us, “This brief was designed to challenge students to approach their practice in a new way and be innovative in their use of materials and processes.”
This whole process shows the span and variety of each course here at CCAD! Check out a few stills from the animations below and make sure to follow CCAD Illustration on Instagram and find out more about the course here.
