Project Title: Diorama

Project Leader: Gillian Moffat

Project Overview: This project challenges students to create a 3D environment in Maya using appropriate Polygon and/or NURBS construction, texturing, lighting and rendering processes. Create a short fly-through no more than 20 seconds in length that explores the environment of a virtual Diorama within Maya. Once complete students will use Unity to explore interactive narrative.

Glitch Virus by Alex Michie

Project Title: Maya Bipeds

Project Leader: Gillian Moffat

Project Overview: This project challenged students to address the topic of anthropomorphism within the context of abstraction. The final piece of moving image was created in Maya using appropriate Polygon and/or NURBS construction, texturing, lighting, rigging, animation and rendering processes.

Project Title: Screen Language

Project Leader: Gillian Moffat

Project Overview: The short film dates back to 1910, when theatres screened short subject films before feature length movies. The format was so well received that many studios had outlets that exclusively featured  these one-reel films. The challenge of this project is to create a short film of no more that 60 seconds in length around the theme of HEAT.

2013-14 Term 1 Third Year Project 3 – Data Visualisation

Screen Shot 2013-10-26 at 21.43.14

Project Title: Data Visualisation

Project Leader: Paul Maguire

Project Overview: Data is everything and everywhere. How do we make sense of such “big data”? This project aims to equip students with the ability to visually encode data using procedural methods, exploring different graphing “types”, spacial mapping, and the use of scale, colour and position to create meaningful, interpretative realisations of multi-dimensional information.

2013-14 Term 1 Second Year Project 3 – Vine video

Screen Shot 2013-11-06 at 10.46.08
Project Title: Vine Video

Project Leader: Paul Maguire

Project Overview: Imposing creative constraints on artists often elicits an ingenious creative response. A 6 second loop of square video created using an app-based proprietary authoring tool and social network? Now there is a constraint! This short project encourages consideration and experimentation: consideration of the core characteristics of the medium; and experimentation with those constraints.
